Public Health “Experts” Allow COVID-Infected Staff To Stay On The Job
Health authorities around the U.S. are beginning to allow nurses and other workers infected with the coronavirus to stay on the job, ABC News reported.
ABC and many other mainstream outlets have suggested that this is likely caused by rising caseloads amidst the Omicron variant, but neglect to mention the other obvious and far more likely cause – Covid shot mandates that have resulted in the firing of thousands and thousands of health workers throughout the nation. In just New York alone Fox News recently reported that more than 30,000 health care workers are out of jobs due to the draconian mandates.
Many hospitals are not only swamped with cases but severely shorthanded because of so many employees out with COVID-19.ABC: Health officials let COVID-infected staff stay on the job
California health authorities announced over the weekend that hospital staff members who test positive for the Covid-19 virus can continue working as long as they are “symptom-free.” ABC also admitted that employees who are contagious and infectious have been in some cases been encouraged to work as well, writing that “some hospitals in Rhode Island and Arizona have likewise told employees they can stay on the job if they have no symptoms or just mild ones.”
This was further expanded on, with the report stating that Dignity Health, a major hospital operator in the Phoenix area, sent out a memo stating that staff members who are infected with the Covid-19 virus but believe they are well enough to work can do so by simply requesting an exemption from their managers.
“We are doing everything we can to ensure our employees can safely return to work while protecting our patients and staff from the transmissibility of COVID-19,” Dignity Health said in a statement.
The 100,000-member California Nurses Association reportedly opposed the new decision strongly and warned it will lead to further spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Gov. Gavin Newsom and other state health leaders “are putting the needs of health care corporations before the safety of patients and workers,” Cathy Kennedy, the association’s president, said in a statement. “We want to care for our patients and see them get better — not potentially infect them.”
