STRONGLY OPPOSED to permanent SARS-CoV-2 standard

Why would a permanent standard for work place polices regarding SARS-CoV-2 be put into place at this stage in the pandemic? The current policy makes perfect sense as we attempt to slow the spread of the virus and reduce the chance for anyone to contract it. It does not make sense for that policy to be made permanent while several vaccines are in stage 3 clinical trials and many experts predict that a successful vaccine will be available in 2021. I suggest extending the current standard from 6 months to 1 year post-inception, and then reassess the need/timeline at that time.
