In favor of making some of the ETS standards permanent

I am an employer and while I understand that businesses want to be open, we have to keep ourselves and our employees safe. We also have to keep our customers and clients safe.

I am in favor of making the following provisions of the ETS permanent:

Keep requirement for hand sanitizer. 

Keep flexible sick leave language.

Require landlords to inform employer tenants of covid positive cases in the building.

Require employers to report to VDH. If someone lives out of state or is tested out of state, that will not otherwise be reported in Virginia.

Do not change the return to work rule regarding being symptom free, otherwise change it to comply with the CDC guidelines.

Thank you.
