Mask mandate is the least we can do to protect each other

Each day we seem to get more and more information and research coming out about how to best prevent the spread of COVID-19. Just today I was reading new research about the decreased percentage of transfer when both parties, vs one person, and adding in distancing requirements come into play as well. Wow there is no guarantee that any of these measures will protect anyone won hundred percent, it should be up to the federal government or then our state to mandate that when workers are asked to return that they have a safe working environment. New research articles were also published today about the important end of good ventilation and the dangers of transmission in shared bathrooms. All of these topics are of great concern as we talk about opening up the schools in the fall. If teachers are required to endanger their own health as well as the health of their families, then there definitely needs to be a mandate of safety measures in our public schools.
