I'm a safety manager in the manufacturing sector. It is becoming very clear that the type of masks required by 16VAC25-220 are not effective in preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2. This is an endemic disease and is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to comply with the standard. Also, the requirements set forth in the standard have not controlled the spread of SARS-CoV-2. I recommend the revocation of the Virginia Standard for Infectious Disease Prevention of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus.
