I'm not going back to read everything that was said, but your opinions hold value whether people agree with them, or not. What is a board, if it isn't a gathering of people of many ages, socio economic backgrounds, careers, races, morals, and opinions? I do agree with the fact that masking, distancing, washing hands, staying at home when possible and avoiding large crowds are the best for a pandemic, but we also know that people have jobs and need jobs. Every state governor has advisers keeping them on top of their individual state's standings on things such as hospital capacities, hospital staff, supplies, treatments, poverty level, eviction standings, state laws and authority, court standings on authority, .... The Karen in all of us wants to express what we feel is best, and the truth is, none of us have a clue to all the intricacies that are going on in every state as a result of this pandemic. Your voice is no more or less important than anyone else on this board, don't let people silence you.
