But if you’re NOT vaccinated, you’re fired
Asymptomatic healthcare workers who tested positive for COVID-19 are now allowed to skip quarantine and return to work, according to new guidelines announced Saturday, as the state struggles to deal with an “unprecedented surge” in coronavirus infections.
The guidelines, which have quickly come under fire from health workers and unions, importantly, do not completely prevent such COVID-19 positive healthcare workers from interacting with patients who do not have the infection.
Under the new guidelines from the California Department of Public Health, healthcare workers with COVID-19 would no longer need to isolate or test negative for the virus before they return to work if they are asymptomatic. However, they must wear an N-95 mask at all times.
