Michigan Hospitals Employees Ordered to Come to Work While Awaiting COVID-19 Test Results
Michigan hospitals ask staff exposed to COVID-19 to still come to work https://t.co/nxvo8mZ3aw— Detroit Free Press (@freep) November 21, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: Staffing shortages in Michigan hospitals are so feared that staff who have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19 are expected to continue to work while awaiting test results as long as he or she remain symptomless. We all know that someone can infect others with COVID-19 for days before showing symptoms or can have the coronavirus while also having no symptoms.
I suspect that Michigan is not the only state following these rules. We, the public, are the front line workers at this point in the pandemic. We must make sure we stay safe, wear masks, physically distance from others you do not live with, wash your hands constantly, do not attend any group activity, stay home if you are sick, stay away from anyone who is sick, and do not spread COVID-19 to others. Healthcare workers have now become the last line of defense and their numbers are starting to dwindle as they contract COVID-19….Carol
