California Says COVID-Positive Health Workers Can Get Back to Work Amid Shortages

re: ethics in medicine
re: The Epoch Times

If an unvaccinated and uninfected person is a risk (we the demonized and hated of the world now), particularly someone with natural immunity, what’s the risk of someone with COVID actually in their body?

The Epoch Times: California Says COVID-Positive Health Workers Can Get Back to Work Amid Shortages

2022-01-09 by Jack Philips. Emphasis added.

The California Department of Public Health issued guidance that allows health care networks to enable COVID-19-positive employees to keep working if they don’t show any symptoms.

“The department is providing temporary flexibility to help hospitals and emergency services providers respond to an unprecedented surge and staffing shortages. Hospitals have to exhaust all other options before resorting to this temporary tool. Facilities and providers using this tool, should have asymptomatic COVID-19 positive workers interact only with COVID-19 positive patients to the extent possible,” the Department of Public Health said in a statement to news outlets over the weekend.

Health care workers in the state now don’t have to isolate or show a negative COVID-19 test, the guidance said, before coming back to work if they are asymptomatic. The guidance, which remains in effect until Feb. 1, stipulates that staff wear N95 respirator masks while on the job.

After the guidance was handed down, several unions that represent nurses and other hospital staff expressed alarm.


WIND: hypocrisy of the narrative knows no bounds. But I am 'good' with this approach as it is sensible, and the more sensible things get, the better.

Asymptomatic COVID-positive healthcare workers wearing N95 masks are probably very low risk, not that N95 particulate respirators are proven for blocking COVID. But some of them might become symptomatic. Even so, if Omicron dominates, it seems unlikely that a healthcare worker with Omicron is going to cause harm to someone already infected with it.
