Making the Emergency Tempory Standards on Covid-19 in the Workplace Permanent
 

Virginia led the way with the Emergency Temporary Standards creating the first in the nation mandatory and enforceable standards protecting workers in the workplace from Covid-19.   These standards have not only benefited the workers of Virginia they have also set a positive example for all states.  Making the standards permanent will not only ensure protection for workers and establish a common standard that all companies must adhere to in Virginia, it will also continue to set an example for the rest of the country, an example that is sorely needed in this period of national crisis.
