Strongly support making temporary pandemic standards permanent
Thank you for adopting emergency temporary standards for workers during the pandemic. Since Covid-19 continues to be a major problem and likely to worsen again this Fall, I urge the Department of Labor to adopt strong, permanent standards to protect workers and provide clear guidance for employers. It is important that all employees in Virginia, but especially those on the front lines of food production and services, are protected from the novel coronavirus and other viruses that afflict our society, not only for their own health, that of their families, and people they may come into contact with, but also for the health of the commonwealth's economy. Please make the temporary standards permanent.
