What we have learned about this pandemic. Is that of course it is deadly, spreading, no relief, not slowing down. It is spreading and thousands are dying every single day! The first case was reported on New Year's Eve 2019 in the city of Wuhan, China. Here in Utah. The first confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported on March 6 in Davis County, UT. Since March we have had over 220,000 confirmed cases and nearly 1,000 deaths. This is in Utah alone. We need to keep our people and communities safe from this deadly virus. You may see signs on local businesses saying that a mask is mandatory in order to enter. Well as this is good news, the bad news is that the businesses still allows their customers in without a mask even though it is "mandatory", Here is my proposal on this deadly COVID-19 Virus.
Create Enough Masks that will allow for everyone to have one, if not have one provided at every single local business before entering.
Encourage people in wearing their mask while out in public with keeping at least a minimum of 6 feet apart from others.
Allow a minimum of 5-10 people inside small restaurants such as Fast Food places. A minimum of 40-50 people allowed inside bigger restaurants with every other table empty for distancing.
Encourage government Cash Relief as people are struggling during this time in need.
Create Enough Masks
We can provide enough masks for those entering businesses who do not have a mask present. We can provide businesses enough masks to help those who enter their business without one. Enough masks will be sure everyone has one and this will improve covid relief while shopping or out in public. I will never keep our people locked up during this pandemic but will find a way for us to go about living our lives while staying safe. If we all wear a mask this will save lives.
Encouraging Those To Wear A Mask
While there are many states on lockdown, this is the last I would want to do. I like to see people out and about. But wearing a mask will ensure your safety as well as others around you. Also washing hands and keeping at least a minimum of 6 feet apart from others is how we can get this virus under control. Those who do not wear a mask is more likely to catch COVID than anyone wearing one. I believe we should also lower prices of masks at local businesses who currently are selling masks. Lowering the price will encourage those to buy them. I understand that this pandemic is globally impacting millions while you can make money from selling masks. But we need to ensure people can AFFORD ONE!! Thousands have lost their job due to this pandemic and is struggling to put food on the table while trying to figure out how to purchase a mask to save their life.
Allowing Minimum In Local Businesses
This plan may not seem worth the effort. But hear me out.. If local businesses only allowed a minimum of people inside. For an example: A restaurant with over 50 tables may allow 25 groups, which may be a couple going out to eat, friends, etc. With every other table empty for distancing. Yes there may be a longer wait time while waiting to sit and eat. But this will allow not so many people inside at once. Smaller businesses like gas stations, fast food, etc. May only allow 5-10 people in at once with every person wearing a mask with a distance of at minimum of 6 feet apart. This will help slow the pace of covid-19 and at the same time while saving lives.
Encourage Cash Relief
Encouraging Emergency Cash Relief will help millions during this crucial time. Putting money directly in the hands of the American people will help them with their well being and financial situation. With this Covid-19 crisis, people are struggling, some lost their job, a mother of six making minimum wage struggling to feed her children. What can get worse than the crisis we are currently in? This pandemic has affected over 20 million Americans which a majority of them had been deceased due to this pandemic crisis. We DO NOT need to lose anymore of our people. We need Cash Relief so people can find courage, hope, future of success. We need this cash relief during this time and I will fight for Cash Relief for all. Those who are on Social Security as well as those who are making $15 a hour working full time. Cash Relief is a must in order to get through this. Millions have lost hope and we need to show the people that hope is there and we will get through this together!
