Giving state workers the option to work from home decreases the risk of spreading COVID-19 further. We have the ability to work from home, because we did it in the past at the height of COVID, however, in May we were sent back to the office full time. 

Since then, we have had an outbreak that started in one department and has been spreading consistently. We currently have over 50 positive cases in the Truman Building and each day that number goes up. It is not a safe work environment.

It can also hurt our community if people contract the virus unknowingly and are out and about in the community, spreading it to people outside of work as well. 

Working in the office with this many positive cases increases the risk of catching the virus and increases the risk of employees taking it home to their families. Family members could be at a higher risk of catching the virus. People who live with elderly family members could bring it home and possibly infect those who are more susceptible to have further complications beyond the symptoms of the virus, even death.
