ETS as Permanent Standard
 

I applaud the Governor and the Board for issuing the ETS, and fully support making the standard permanent. I am sorry that it places a burden on employers. DOLI / VOSH has offered assistance and as this virus is deadly and highly contagious there is no other responsible choice.

This virus spreads exponentially and as the majority of citizens are employed, it makes sense that they could be exposed and unintentionally infect the workplace- also, without the mandatory requirement of employer notification to employees once a suspected or positive case is reported and subsequent isolation required, could destroy the entire workforce and their families, and ruin the business entirely, with the added detriment of facilitating widespread community transmission. 

Make it permanent unless and until a vaccine is available that destroys or prevents Covid-19.
