Completed petition Advise all people who are extremely vulnerable or previously shielding in Wales to stay home, not work, during periods of high covid 19 community infection

Failing to recognise that many of us work in enclosed areas with a significant number of other individuals and minimal ventilation. We cannot reduce contacts, and although masks will reduce virus contamination, it will not stop transmission, such as hospital acquired infections and aerosol particles of covid 19 which remain suspended for hours in enclosed spaces. We are terrified and frightened and risk serious mental health issues and physical injury or death from covid 19.
