Doctors and Nurses Are Being Told to Work With COVID Symptoms Still Present

January 13, 2022

Another 781,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the last 24 hours, with hospitalizations up 80%. Some health-care workers are posting videos on TikTok, claiming they're being told they should come to work just five days after testing positive for COVID-19, even if they are still showing symptoms. Hospitals say they're simply following CDC guidelines, and with so many of their employees coming down with COVID-19, they say they don't have a choice and need their nurses and doctors back.
