Using a framework is one way to think
through many alternatives when making
ethically challenging decisions about
access to public spaces.

right surpass the rights of others to
avoid COVID-19?

The Justice Approach also considers
rights but asks decisionmakers
to consider whether rights
are applied equitably. In this case,

The Common Good Approach
moves away from focusing on
specific populations to making the
best decision for the whole community.
While similar to the Utilitarian
Approach, the Common Good Approach
is not rigidly quantitative.
The Virtue Approach urges
decision-makers to make a decision
that aligns with their personal
morals and virtues.
The suitability of each approach
will change from dilemma to dilemma.
Evaluation
After
making a decision, the final
steps require reflective evaluation
- not just " Did this work? " but
" Would someone I respect have
made the same decision? " We do
not yet know how playground closures
and extended isolation have
impacted individuals' physical
and mental health. We do know
that states that closed public playgrounds
experienced a lower increase
in COVID-19 infections rates
than states that chose not to close or
left decisions up to local authorities.
We cannot know for sure whether
closing playgrounds or leaving
them open was the best choice
for public health and safety. It is
possible that the right decision for
one dilemma creates additional
challenges. Using a framework is
one way to think through many
alternatives when making ethically
challenging decisions about access
to public spaces.
