I'm a Virginia resident and I am writing to urge you to make Virginia's Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) a permanent workplace health and safety standard on COVID-19. Virginia led the nation in establishing this legislation and it has protected so many workers, especially the most vulnerable essential workers, during these very difficult times. We need to continue and establish a strong permanent standard that protects workers and give clear guidance to their employers.
This is so critical to protect those who are working so hard, prevent the further spread of this virus, to save lives, and also to help businesses operate safely and revive our economy again.
Thank you for the work you are all doing and for your attention to this very important legislation.
