As an employer of over 350 employees in the commonwealth of Virginia I am opposed to making this temporary standard permanent. I believe that the temporary standard added little or no additional protection to our employees.
The move to make this measure permanent will continue to place an unfair burden on Virginia employers, and provide no additional protection to employees.
This is another overreach from this administration into the private sector under the guise of public safety. The pandemic has been devastating on the business community and these type of burdensome regulations just add to an already bad situation.
I urge you to vote no on making this permanent, and let the business community continue to do the right things for our employees and provide them with a safe workplace.
