School teachers in Mississauga and Brampton have been ordered to wear goggles and eat alone outside because of increasing transmissions of COVID-19 between staff members.
A directive issued by the Peel District School Board to staff says goggles or face shields are now mandatory "to protect the mucous membranes of the eyes from exposure to potentially infectious droplets" of the virus.
As well, the directive also says teachers and staff must not congregate and must eat alone at lunchtime, "preferably outdoors."
I imagine full scuba gear complete with oxygen tanks are the next logical step; or spacesuits perhaps.
I would like to add a few words about the dehumanizing aspects of measures such as these, but dehumanization only applies to humans, not to potential biological hazards, which is essentially what humans have become . . . and will remain into the foreseeable future.
