  1. My best friend’s husband is one of five bus drivers for the schools in Bowie, he has severe symptoms, and even went to work initially for several days not knowing it was covid he had, tomorrow his boss wants him back on that will bus driving and she doesn’t care how sick he still is! Said she can force him because he’s been out 7 days. Not only will this jeopardize his own life, he can barely get around, his O2 level is not what it is supposed to be, he is coughing constantly, and they want him around children??!!! I’m so angry about businesses that affect complying to the guidelines because of the almighty dollar I could just spit!

  2. Victoria, your best friends husband most likely got it from a sick asymptomatic child on the bus. He could claim a worker’s compensation injury and sue the school district for a hefty sum for violating his worker’s rights. Any employer that forces a worker to work despite their sickness is breaking the law! Get tested and get an attorney quick!
