“With Ebola being transmitted through perspiration and bodily fluids and coming into contact with those kinds of fluid, I think it is something that needs to happen.”

Tompson’s bill requires shoppers to keep their clothes on while trying on under garments or to wear disposable shields. It doesn’t say what kind of penalty violators face.
