I've said it before in another thread like this, but as to the mask wearing, there has been way too much "It's not a problem for me, so it's not a problem for you" and aren't actually listening to valid reasons why they have problems wearing a mask. There are too many assumptions that it's politically motivated. Yes, some are, but not all.I am convinced a lot more people's lives have been adversely affected by mask mandates than most people realize. I wish your employees well and hope they can get back soon.
I, for one, have had to work on severe anxiety issues I have when both my nose and mouth are covered at the same time, especially for an extended period of time. It's why I can't snorkle or scuba dive. Add in the heat we have here in Spring/Summer/Fall (months not named January), and it gets bad for me.
