Yes to heat regulation to protect farmworkers

Thank you for your leadership and proposing covid-19 safety regulations. that is an excellent precedent for the current need for heat regulations that will protect farm workers, construction workers, and other vulnerable outdoor workers. Ensuring that they have access to water, breaks, medical Care and housing if appropriate provides a baseline of humane treatment that should be the norm and not the exception in Virginia. Your comprehensive attention to this issue will be greatly appreciated.
