Commenter: Walkabout Outfitter

Please remove burdensome Covid regulations on businesses

To whom it may concern,

I own a small business, Walkabout Outfitter that has six locations in Virginia.  It is a retail business and it has been awful trying to keep our business afloat, and continuing employing people, these last 2 years.  Science shows that current widespread variants of the virus no longer constitute a grave danger to employees in the workplace.  It is time to remove the cumbersome and burdensome Covid regulations on businesses.  It's been an awful time for businesses and 25% of all small businesses in Virginia CLOSED their doors permanently.  It's time to help them by removing regulations that are just difficult, costly, and take time.  Let us work on serving customers instead of taking time trying to keep up with regulations.  It's bad enough for those of us in retail, that the last two years have trained people to just shop on Amazon!!  Let us get back to creating a positive experience in our stores.  

Please remove the Covid regulations!

Tina Miller

Owner, Walkabout Outfitter
