This is chilling. A nurse on the front lines in Chicago tried to wear her own N95 to work while caring for COVID pts (when it wasn’t supplied for her) & she was told by management she would not be allowed to. She quit her job. @DrMarthaGulati @CMichaelGibson @boback @netta_doc pic.twitter.com/eEVF8JNwGm

I’m a nurse. I also recently quit my job because we had no N95 masks. It feels like a hopeless situation. The CDC even changed the guidelines and said medical personnel should wear bandanas if they have to. I can’t even file for unemployment because I quit.
I want more than anything to be out there helping and taking care of people right now. But I am a single parent. I have to be able to protect myself. I can’t work without PPE.
