Text of Petition:
Consider the welfare and
genuine fears of extremely vulnerable people relating to covid 19 during
periods of high community infection rates. Many extremely vulnerable people in
Wales are terrified of going out each day to work for up to eight plus hours in
what we all know to be unsafe environments.
Failing to recognise that many of us work in
enclosed areas with a significant number of other individuals and minimal
ventilation. We cannot reduce contacts, and although masks will reduce virus
contamination, it will not stop transmission, such as hospital acquired
infections and aerosol particles of covid 19 which remain suspended for hours
in enclosed spaces. We are terrified and frightened and risk serious mental
health issues and physical injury or death from covid 19.
