Strongly Opposed

Our economy is driven by small business, and these businesses will close forever and will be considered too risky to open should the Department of Labor and Industry’s COVID-19 Regulations becoming Permanent. Commercial real estate will be rendered useless and empty with debt that would not be paid. Do not take Covid as a precedence to what should be. The over powering regulations of health departments infringe upon the freedom to live normal lives. Our children's mental and physical health will suffer, in addition to the health and welfare of others. 

We are also not meant to live so removed from others, or to live in fear. Please do not make Covid-19 Regulations permanent for infectious disease, which by the way, could be any illness depending on how loosely the Department of Health wishes to define it. I strongly oppose.
