EPA suspends environmental protection laws during coronavirus pandemic

According to new guidelines from the EPA, industries will largely be exempt to meet environmental standards during the coronavirus pandemic, with the agency saying it will not ’seek penalties for noncompliance with routine monitoring and reporting obligations.’ EPA said that the agency does not expect industries to meet environmental standards and reporting of pollution during this time.

Mostly about rules that cant be followed. Like if they need to use a external lab to test samples, but all the labs that do that are closed, they won't be fined for not sticking to the law. It is not a waifer to just dump everything.
