Make Virginia's Emergency Temporary Standard Permanent
 

Virginia did the right thing in providing an Emergency Temporary Standard available to protect workers for workplace safety and health, and it has been working but it was to expire in six months.  Protecting workers safety and health makes sense at all times, during the continuation of the threat from the Covid-19 virus which will be with us for some time, but also from any recognized danger at any time.  Virginia workers have reason to be proud of a Commonwealth that values them enough to protect them now and should be able to have the same confidence on into the future.
