Please require mandatory safety precautions including masks

I work in a childcare facility located inside a fitness center. Many of the people I work with have autoimmune issues, two people are pregnant, and yet we must return to work in order to protect our financial health. While some on the parents are upset about the precautions, I am happy to know steps are being taken to protect me and my coworkers. Making these precautions a requirement by law is the right thing to do. A person desiring groceries can order online rather than go inside if they do not want to wear a mask. I cannot choose not to go to work. I cannot choose not to pay my rent. Why should someone with options and choices be allowed to put my life at risk?
