Working Safely

Mandatory Masks Making Employees Vulnerable

Our county is requiring masks in order for businesses to reopen; however, customers are constantly touching the masks to adjust them and then touching items in the store. Cross-contamination from masks and gloves is a serious issue since most people do not change them every time they are touched.

Employees wearing the masks complain of dizziness and shortness of breath.

There are several studies on PubMed showing that... more »

Physical therapist

Physical therapy outpatient clinics should be allowed to reopen using all compliance with safety & disinfecting precautions. Patients should continue to wear masks as should the healthcare provider until we are told otherwise by out institution & unfortunately, our Governor. I think too Pres. Trump should intervene & tell Dr. Fauci to shut up now & gradually deal with the upticks & open up businesses. We're hemorrhaging... more »

Working Safely

Don't

The federal government should encourage states to keep restrictions in place until there is enough testing and contact tracing to make it safe for everyone. More aid need to be offered for ALL working people, including the undocumented. If everyone else is virus free and the undocumented still are vulnerable, no one can rest easy on the topic of another outbreak.

Reducing Regulatory Burdens

Community forums

To create more unity and help make sure citizens still feel like part of a community, why not start discussion forums or locally organized boards to help serve as a liaison between government and community? Community members can have a voice.

The communities with the lowest crime rates and highest quality of life KNOW they are part of a community (social cohesion). With all the bipartisanism that's been going on, reuniting... more »

Supporting America's Families

Families First

Before opening businesses slowly and thoroughly American families need to have childcare in place and the assurance that they will be safe in the workforce. Without our families being cared for people cannot be expected to go to work in peace and without the proper protection in place to ensure people's safety you cannot expect people to go to work. And they should be celebrated for this not punished. Government should... more »

Incentive

Returning to work should involve a transitional weaning off public support so that not all support is withdrawn immediately!

A defined transitional period , say 6 months, for business to return to previous standards should be given to allow them a fair chance to keep their business viable.

Working Safely

Therapy Aide

I know a few people who work in the meat packing industry: over 1000 people have died and you're threatening to deny unemployment to those workers who won't risk their lives to keep plants open?



Close the plants and protect people, not big industry.

one-size-does-not-fit-all

I think it's important to take all needs into consideration. Yes, we can open in a smart, safe way, but some cannot take the risk and there should be reasonable provisions for everyone. Consider immuno-compromised individuals who may not be able to interact with the public, even with a mask and gloves. There needs to be a safe way to allow people to make that choice for themselves. Just like it would be too restrictive... more »

Reopen using LOCAL, SCIENTIFIC guidelines

If a locality is showing signs of flattening the curve or a declining curve, then cautiously reduce lock-down restrictions.

If a locality (city, county) is NOT showing these signs continue in the lock-down mode until it does.

Do NOT use national or state curves to guide decisions to reduce lock-down restrictions for entire states or the entire country.
