E-commerce posted strong double-digit growth in the second quarter, bringing in $12.477 billion total in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The bureau said sales rose 27.8 percent from the second quarter of 2002. By comparison, overall retail sales grew less than 5 percent. The figures show the second quarter was the busiest non-holiday period for e-commerce since the Census Bureau began tracking online purchases in 1999.

Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.

Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
