Time to end the regulations

The past two years, DOLI/VOSH has been enforcing near impossible regulations related to COVID as part of the TPS/FPS.  These items have not made a significant impact to the health/safety as far as our efforts show for employees, and considering the prevalent nature of the Virus in society, it is impossible to determinate point of origin. 


It is my hope that the Safety and Health Codes Board makes it official on March 19, to end these overbearing regulations.  They are not protecting employees, anymore than they are protecting the general public, and the costs have been astronomical.  This includes hard costs (supplies, cleaning, staffing shortages) and soft costs (employee morale, customer impact, etc.)  


It's time for us to move on past COVID.  If an individual wants to wear a mask, so let them.  But it should not be a requirement for businesses to enforce on employees or customers.  


Thank you for your time and consideration.
