Infections, including the common cold and flu, decreased markedly during the covid-19 pandemic. This was chiefly because of measures such as social distancing, hand-washing and, above all, perhaps, the wearing of face masks. It was reassuring to see kitchen personnel wearing masks in a range of food-preparation areas - from those in cafes and restaurants to fast-food outlets and the cold meat and fish counters at supermarkets.

Now that the worst of the pandemic is over in places like Australia, most ot these precautionary measures have been lifted. This, unfortunately, includes mask-wearing in food-preparation areas. Most staffers felt that wearing masks was not a problem and provided an additional measure of protection against infection not just by the covid virus but a range of other potentially infectious microbes.

Please consider joining this petition in requesting state and federal governments worldwide to legislate in favour of mask-wearing by employees working in public food-preparation areas. And, where possible, please try to lobby the managers of cafes, restaurants, fast-food outlets and supermarkets to introduce regulations enforcing this safety measure as soon as possible.
