Biden vows aggressive use of safety agency to protect workers from COVID-19 (Reuters)

COVID-19 represents a ripple of preventable death, exacerbated by bad decisions by demented President DONALD JOHN TRUMP and his accomplices, like, Florida's Dull Republican Boy Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS and four of our maladroit st. Johns County Commissioners (except for I. Henry Dean). These science-denying, math-impaired Dull Republicans have killed people. THeir anti-mask idiocy put lives at risk. So does the ineptituede of nominal St. Johns County Attorney PATRICK FRANCIS McCORMACK, who counts to three instead of writing a constitutional law memo to raise the quality of debate before our County Commission, which refujsed tp lisen to science. Thank God for Joe Biden's election. I am grateful for the President-elect's reported plans for an emergency OSHA rule on COVID-9 protection for worekrs. From Reuters: Biden vows aggressive use of safety agency to protect workers from COVID-19 By Reuters Staff 1 MIN READ WASHINGTON, Dec 29 (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden said on Tuesday his administration would seek to determine if an emergency standard was needed to protect workers from COVID-19 and he vowed to make sure the workplace safety agency enforces safety rules. “In the midst of a global pandemic, OSHA has been prevented from using its full range of tools to protect workers from COVID-19,” he said in a statement marking the 50th anniversary of the law that created the agency - the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
