I live where there is a lot of construction going on, and I’m not seeing physical distancing among construction workers. Will construction workers end up being a pool of transmission? I’m concerned. With the current situation, builders can go through COVID 19 Awareness and Preparedness Training. Web Link Safety first

I totally agree.

The fact that we might be forced to go back to phase 1 is going to drive it to a halt.

As many doctors predicted, the relaxing of social controlling is making it spread more rapidly.

And many of these workers travel hours to work. In group transport. No distancing.

It is a disaster in the making.

Why can't we all just understand we are in a World War against COVID?

Many documentaries have discussed how a virus could wipe out the human race. And it is not science fiction, like an alien attack, it is REAL.

And we need to marshal a world medical army to defeat it?

Instead you have businesses lobbying to prevent this. And worse trying to enable the enemy to attack more of us.

I'm not surprised. I live in Los Altos and have walked by many residential construction sites. I rarely see the workers wearing facemasks. Even worse are the food trucks. No masks inside the food truck, contractors standing close together in line waiting to order, and then sitting next to one another to eat.

It was very poor judgement to put construction workers back on the job. They have no income so we had to compromise public safety. It's painfully obvious that "undocumented immigration" is just a fancy term for human trafficking. Newsom's policies put the entire state at risk for a deadly virus.
