There is an outbreak of COVID-19 as pandemic and the country is in a state of emergency. 

The retail stores around us are serving our community to keep all of us stocked with daily life consumable goods.

My heart goes out to many of the employees that are working as hourly and management associate  in these retail stores. They keep the daily business running, without any interruptions. Doing so, they are in contact and in communication with many customers on a daily basis. From what I have observed they do not have basic protection, like N95 mask, gloves or any self sanitation kit.

Many individyals working for non-retail store environment, have the option to work from home, but this is not true for these retail associated.

These associates are hourly paid employees and cant chose to work from home, since  their pay will be deducted, as per HR policies.

If they have to work and serve our community, apart from just making an end of day store sanitization, every store also needs to focus on their employee health safety. Since there is constant influx of customers day in and day out in these stores, The customers are touching consumable products and stand at the checkout counter where a store associate helps to check them out.

Also these associates are interacting with other store associates at every department and back office on a daily basis inside the store.

In short the entire store associate health is in a question for exposure to this dangerous virus.

My petition here is to ask support from our community and the retail store business leaders to  help provide safety kit to our retail store associates who are serving us to keep our daily needs full filled with no fear to this pandemic.

Hope the retail stores do the immediate needful to keep your associates safe first through proving N95 mask, protective glove and a self sanitization process or kit.
