There at one time, were talks of making some of our current COVID-19 rules and restrictions, into permanent rules to follow.

Those permanent rules have been abandoned, however, and we should see many of the current COVID-19 restrictions expire themselves out.

Some of the rules that I am talking about are more workplace rules, that the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration put in place back at the beginning of COVID-19, and are set to expire on October 14th.

Originally, the proposed permanent rules would include things such as social distancing, daily temperature, and health screening, as well as barriers between workers.

The process would've been scheduled to take place on May 26th, and intentionally even some new rules. However, due to an increase in vaccines, and a drop in COVID-19 numbers, the MIOSHA decided to abandon the process, according to MLive.

Since the pandemic hit, MIOSHA found and cite 280+ workplaces for violating rules during the pandemic, as well as receiving more than 15,000 complaints about workplaces.

“The proposed permanent MIOSHA regulations … would have been disastrous for our state’s employers, communities and workforce,” said president and CEO of the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber, Ronald Hinrichs, in a release. “We agree that this is a step in the right direction.”

The next rule set to be modified is Monday, May 24th, which would stop requiring employees to work remotely.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
