“ I think they should. It seems like it should be a job requirement to do what you can to prevent the spread of disease. I can’t work at a construction site and take my hard hat off.”

“ No, I don’t think they should be required. It’s their own personal decision. ”

“ Of course. I’m a tattoo artist and have to wear safety glasses. Why not.”

Perhaps a better question is why would healthcare providers object to getting them? Perhaps they know they are not as safe as advertised?

It should be required of everyone. An errant sneeze is as deadly as a gun.

Funny, it wasn't a "condition of employment" when we were hired.

That said, it's a minor inconvenience, at most. And an especially good idea for parents of school-age children, the little pestilence spreaders.

Of course, EVERYONE should. Even if it is only 60% effective. No one should be allowed in public w/o one; that's what we have prisons for.
