As a police officer working in the small town of Lodi, Wisconsin, Daniel Monson describes the challenges he has faced because of the pandemic. This includes, which he describes in detail, a severe hindrance to his ability to conduct his job properly due to wearing a mask and others around him wearing a mask. He talks about how a police officer’s threat assessment can be negatively impacted when people are wearing face coverings, as well as his disappointment with how information regarding the pandemic has been spread throughout the public. Daniel also talks about how the pandemic has impacted his family, his pregnant and diabetic sister in particular, and his views regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. When asked about the George Floyd protests, Daniel explains that his job has been complicated and that public outreach has been at an all time low for his department with the protests and the pandemic coinciding somewhat simultaneously. He approves of more police training but is wary of defunding the police entirely.
