Just getting better ventilation alone could reduce the rate of transmission
Businesses by and substantial have varied on their responses to the pandemic. I live in a fairly conservative section and I remember walking into suppliers during the initial lockdowns and no 1 was even attempting to follow county and state guidelines. The local hardware store in our small town refused to comply with county mask ordinances, but no 1 in the county even wanted to enforce these rules to begin with. If I walk into a supplier and see that most people is not wearing a mask, I turn around and leave. There’s consistently someone else with a competing business, whether it’s a hardware store, the bank, or a negligent medical professionals office. The cannabis dispensaries all seem to be doing their best by comparison. They all have mask rules for their retail locations and no 1 is allowed entry unless they comply with the rule. Still, I’d like to see them following suit with our favorite dispensary. This store not only requires masks, but they also use this high powered UV light air purification machine. It has a strong fan that pulls in air from inside the store and pushes it through a series of UV light bulbs, killing any viral particles in the process. If local suppliers would simply improve their ventilation, it would go far towards mitigating health risks among their buyers and employees both. Just getting better ventilation alone could reduce the rate of transmission. These companies will complain about the costs, then the federal government will shrug its shoulders while expecting all of the states to materialize the currency like pulling a rabbit out of a hat. And if no deal is reached, they simply project and blame the other side.
