Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS)
Virginia's Emergency Temporary Standard led the country in establishing protections for individuals working in exceptionally crowded conditions, such as meat packing facilities and call centers. Covid made these protections urgent. The disease is still with us, so the protections need to be made permanent. The workers who staff these facilities have been regarded as "essential." Therefore, are also essential. They also represent a standard of decent treatment that should be a minimum essential of decency.
