Letter: Proactive action is needed


After many reports nationally about meat packing plant employees contracting the virus, I wondered if Clark County Public Health ever thought about making a courtesy visit to similar processing plants like the Firestone Plant, which experienced a similar fate of their employees to help them take effective measures to prevent an outbreak. Instead, I read that their response to the outbreak is that “we’re looking into the situation.” Offering help after an outbreak is like cleaning up the mess. We can all look back at what we might have done.
