I am strongly opposed to a standard regulation for two reasons:


1.  There is not enough data on covid-19 to establish accurate regulations.  As more information is learned and treatments are developed, any standards would need to be constantly revised to keep up with the latest information.  This could potentially force businesses both large and small to spend valuable resources on an ever-changing program.


2.  We cannot possibly have one standard that would be suited to every size and type of business out there.  A standard regulation could force business to adopt practices that are neither helpful to nor practical for their safe operation.


We need to continue to let business decide for themselves how they can best defend themselves against the spread of the virus.
