As we are all preparing to go into another lockdown there are people out there who were told to shield only a few month ago. But now are requested to continue to put their lives at risk during this pandemic. I am talking about the vulnerable workers that feel scared, anxious and unprotected while most of us stay home to be save. May that be in the NHS, childcare settings, schools, unis or other essential sectors.

I work in a school and already feel nervous but my best friend works at a school for special needs children. She is highly vulnerable and would not survive if she was to get COVID. She has two young children and family that if worst was to happen would all be angry and devastated because people like her weren't protected. 

Even if she tries to use protective clothing, these children are non verbal and need to see her face. If she wears face shield the children are very likely to pull it off due to frustration or confusion. She is not safe and so aren't many others in whichever essential area they work at as those are still exposed despite the best efforts.

The choices as of now are go to work, feeling nervous, anxious, scared for her life, or stay home and lose her income. Its not right and its also affecting everyone mentally, emotionally and physically.

Please everyone share this petition and sign it. Hopefully Mr Boris Johnson will come to his senses and will not forget to protect the most vulnerable workers.

Thank you so much
