The purpose of this comment is to request that the Emergency Temporary Standard (see comment subject above) be made a permanent regulation. Reasons follow. The COVID-19 pandemic will not have disappeared at the end of six months. The regulations provide for safety measurers that all employees should be able to expect wherever they work. The regulations provide clear guidance to employers. Following the regulations actually helps employers by providing a healthy workplace, one where employees don't miss work because they've gotten sick on the job or come to work and infect others, thus reducing overall productivity.
Thank you for your consideration.
