Governor Gavin Newsom’s California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has released new guidance allowing asymptomatic health care workers who test positive for Covid-19 or who have been exposed to the virus and are asymptomatic to return to work immediately — without isolation or testing.
We are in the midst of a record-breaking surge of Covid-19 driven by the Omicron variant. California is running out of hospital beds, and nurses and other health care workers are already reporting extreme levels of moral distress and injury.
This newest attack on the protections on which we all rely will only result in more infections, more hospitalizations, and more deaths. We cannot allow this new guidance to stand. We need you with us now.
Use the form below to tell Gov. Newsom: CDPH must rescind this new guidance, protect patients, and keep nurses healthy and safe on the front lines!
