Normalize telework, vaccine mandates, and masking

We have found out how much work CAN be accomplished just as well, if not better, when remote rather than in-person. The vast majority of white collar jobs would have done well to be remote even pre-COVID. Pre-COVID, days of productivity were constantly lost due to colds, flu, etc., things that masking prevents. Vaccines also prevent terrible things, and flu shot mandates should have been a thing even before COVID, but at least now, we need mandates for ALL requisite immunizations, including for COVID and seasonal flu.
