Let’s Keep Everyone Healthy

I strongly support these common sense regulations for social distancing and mask wearing in Virginia workplaces.  As a public school teacher I think that schools need to be given special consideration, given the challenges of maintaining social distancing in that environment.  All staff and students (with the possible exception of our very youngest learners) need to be required to wear masks.  It is not enough for only staff to wear masks, as some school systems have proposed.  This forces teachers to assume all of the risk which is simply unfair, and certainly does not make us feel safe in returning to work.  Please put strong regulations in place so we don’t have to choose between our jobs and our safety.
