I’m thankful that the employees at all of the stores in which I shop are forced to wear face masks.
With the returning COVID crisis, there hasn’t been a more substantial time to get dire about the virus than right now.
Numbers are skyrocketing in states all over the country as the infection & death rates climb. To see employees go without masks in any sort of supplier is unfathomable, especially in doctors’ offices & pharmacies. It doesn’t matter if they’re laboring in a small building or a large building with significant air circulation, I still want to see every employee covering their face. When the auto shop changed our oil the other day, no one in the store room had a mask on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to imply that mechanics need to cover their faces while laboring on your car. However, the people behind the money register easily need to. They sit in the lobby while all of the clients wait seated. I was distraught that our mask would be insufficient with this level of exposure. Thankfully our HVAC company has better viral protection strategies. Every single heating & cooling company is forced to wear surgical masks while at a customer’s house. Even if they’re perspiring out in the Summer heat, the supplier forces them to keep their masks on at all times. They guess how dangerous it would be for an employee to inadvertently infect a customer’s a/c with viral particles. This could put the viral microbes airborne & in precious cases infect the inhabitants of the house.
