I strongly disagree

Now is not the time to make the emergency temporary standard permanent when it’s likely this pandemic will be temporary. Imposing “one size fits all” COVID-19 regulations on all employers and employees is unreasonable especially when guidance is continually changing as we learn more about the virus and how best to protect against it’s spread. Knowing the temporary standard expires in February 2021, there is plenty of time for the Board to wait until we know more about how long the pandemic could last before taking any further action.
