Tell Mayor Bowser Vaccines are NOT Enough!
Aug 11, 2021


From the beginning of the pandemic, medical and disease experts told us we needed three things to get past COVID and keep people healthy- getting a vaccine, wearing a mask, and social distancing, As the number of people getting and dying from the COVID Delta strain have started to shoot upward again, Mayor Bowser seems to be forgetting the key element of keeping people away from each other to prevent exposure. The Mayor held a press conference on Tuesday proclaiming that all District employees must be vaccinated or get weekly tests and wear masks in District buildings. NOT ONE WORD was uttered about social distancing, about the life-saving measure of keeping people separated to prevent contracting and spreading this deadly disease. 

Experts say that a vaccine is not enough. Vaccinated people can still contract and spread COVID, including the more contagious Delta strain. 

Forcing workers back to their offices (for no other reason than to please the business and restaurant lobbyists) and denying telework options in this time of continued crisis puts thousands of employees and their families at risk. 

Tell Bowser vaccines and masks are not enough! Sign and share the petition and make sure it gets signed by everyone you think could be affected.
