it is important that there are organizations on a larger scale that ensuring the children are safe within their communities regardless of where they live, play or attend school. Reply Reply to Comment o Collapse Subdiscussion Jason Caldera Jason Caldera YesterdayJul 10 at 12:11pm Manage Discussion Entry I agree with you that this type of legislation in an important step to protect our children from exposure to harmful chemicals. I know that my son was screened for lead before he started school so the pediatricians appear to be doing their part where I live and thankfully everythign was normal. This makes me think of the water crisis reported in Flint, Michigan and how that level of contamination with such severe health hazards was allowed to happen without appropriate government action to correct it. In the future I hope programs similar to the executive action signed by President Clinton are more widespread and more effective in protecting citizens.

The public should be aware of any potential risks. It is critical for legislation to reduce any exposures or prevent them. Great read, stay safe.

This act helps the employees to be protected, receive income while they have to stay home to care for their children. This act helps employees receive an income and obtain a financial protection. They can receive two weeks’ pay for full time workers, up to 10 weeks of family or medical leave. For employees that need to be quarantined because they have been exposed to Covid 19 or are experiencing symptoms as well as those employees that needs to be out of work because they need to take care of their children due to school closures. This income and protection give their employees and their families piece of mind. Not only does it help the employees it also brings stability to their communities. Employees are able to care for themselves and their families by staying home whether it is to recover themselves or support a family member in need of care due to the exposure of the virus.
