Emergency Temporary Standard Infectious Disease Prevention: SARS-CoV-2 Virus That Causes COVID-19
I strongly oppose making the Emergency Temporary Standard Infectious Disease Prevention: SARS-CoV-2 Virus that causes COVID-19, 16VAC25 as a permanent standard.
We have gone to great expense and effort to comply to the emergency temporary standard and do not think that there is just reason to make it a permanent standard. We were in compliance with this emergency standard as soon as the CDC recommendations came out in March which was way before the emergency standard became a requirement in Virginia. We care about the safety and well being of our employees and visitors to our plants and will always safeguard them from harm regardless. We do not need of a VOSHA standard to make us do the right thing. We will do the right thing on our own because it is the right thing to do for our employees and our business.
