Rescind COVID-19 Employer Mandates

As a Virtual attendee at Wednesday's HSCB meeting regarding the Permanent Standard for COVID-19 in the workplace, I listened intently to the commentors representing most if not all industries in the Commonwealth.  It was abundantly clear employers do not support mandates or government intervention.

The COVID-19 and it's variants have significantly impacted our lives and ruined many businesses, continuing regulatory burdens on employers will not serve to improve workplace conditions, but rather will create nearly impossible compliance problems for employers.  In my opinion, there is no need for a Construction Industry Standard.
