I strongly oppose making the Emergency Regulations permanent.

I strongly oppose making the burdensome Emergency Regulations permanent.  It is hard enough for employers to navigate through the world of COVID as is.  Making the Emergency Regulations permanent will be a huge mistake, and will add another excessive burden for businesses.  While the regulations may be well-intentioned, they will cause hardships for employers and make many decide to close up shop and say it is not worth it.  Most small businesses in this state have been beaten down by the shutdowns and restrictions.  Adding more and/or making them permanent will be a huge mistake and will do unrepairable harm to many, many businesses.  Please do the right thing and don't make them permanent.  Thank you,
