in over a century. The small amount of employees are overworked with multiple job descriptions and underpaid. The pandemic is also cutting jobsand funding that will affect other areas like campground and pool inspections, immunization clinics and sewage problems (Weber, et al).Child care centers in Dallas were open for essential workers since the beginning of the pandemic. On May 18, Governor Abbott allowed the openings of days to non-essential people as part of his partial opening of the state. There were pre-screening requirements that must be done before the child(ren) could return. Since May 21st up until June 30th the cases have jumped from 67 to 950 involving staff members and children. The Government has asked the Health of Human Services to put guidelines back in place and complied with similar rules but they did not include face mask or social distancing for employees or kids ().
Both issues are important not only to me but I'm sure to everyone. I worry about all of my nieces and nephews who have to go to daycare because their parents have to work in order to provide for them. I also worry about my aunt who had to close her in-home day care because she has severe asthma and cannot afford to catch the virus and get sick. It's hard enough trying to keep things out of kids mouth so I know there is no way a baby or young child would will wear a face mask for 8 to 12 hours or even practice social distance from their friends. The world is facing a pandemic without a cure or an advantage to get ahead of it. Many departments rely on funding and the public health departments is one that desperately needs all the help it can get. Why they are depleted of funds and trying to find a cure we have to remember that other health problems are not disappearing just because there is a pandemic, so there lies another problem.References:Hoyt, J.
