Adopting 16VAC25-220 as permanent regulations

As a small business owner I request the board to reject adopting the temporary standard as a permanent regulation.  The CDC recommendations regarding safety protocols for COVID-19 have changed numerous times as they have leaned more about the virus.  It is not practical to create a permanent regulation while science of the virus continues to unfold. The permanent requirements would restrict employers flexibility to make necessary changes when new safety recommendations are issued.   I recommend Virginia follow recommended safety protocols issued by the CDC and OSHA.
