California state health authorities announced this week that hospital staff members who test positive for COVID can continue working if they are largely asymptomatic.
Again, so the COVID-positive can work, but the unvaxxed are not welcomed back.
Does this make any sense?
In a letter stating the new police, Cassie Dunham, the acting deputy director of the California Department of Public Health, wrote: “From Jan. 8, 2022, until Feb. 1, 2022, HCPs (health care personnel) who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and are asymptomatic may return to work immediately without isolation and without testing, and HCPs who have been exposed and are asymptomatic may return to work immediately without quarantine and without testing..”
Many health care providers are shorthanded in part because they claim so many employees are out with COVID. What about all the employees that were fired because they refused to the jab due to natural immunity.
"The Department of Public Health said the new policy was prompted by “critical staffing shortages.” It asked hospitals to make every attempt to fill openings by bringing in employees from outside staffing agencies.
Also, infected workers will be required to wear extra-protective N95 masks and should be assigned to treat other COVID-19-positive patients, the department said."
