Clayton-Tarvin and Briscoe: Feckless OC Supervisors Expose Essential Workers to COVID19

Inaction by the Orange County Board of Supervisors could result in infection, sickness, and death from COVID-19 for many county residents including innocent children. The lack of action by the OC Supervisors is so serious, we believe, that cities like Irvine, Costa Mesa, Seal Beach, and Buena Park have had to take matters into their own hands, passing ordinances to mandate face coverings like masks for essential workers. While we wait like cattle for herd immunity to develop, we must have a strategy to re-emerge. Part of a safety plan should be, we believe, a requirement for face coverings.
