Democracy Dies in Darkness; REMSA needs to censure our Ambulance Service for this

Patient Care EMS: Two employees tested positive for COVID-19 in early April, one testing positive on April 1 and the other on April 7. Neither employee had been on an ambulance since the end of March, said Michael Bureau, chief operating officer. Employees wear masks at all times while they’re around coworkers or patients and have their temperature screened daily, Bureau said.

So two ambulance workers test positive and the public is not made aware of this until over 20 days later! If I’m having an emergency, I think I will just call Lyft. (Probably faster anyway).

Get this, this comes from a very good source. Our local 24/7 big box operation, they have four of them, is telling employees, who have been told by the city health department to quarantine for 14 days, to ignore that recommendation and keep working.

These employees have tested negative, yet, WallyWorld is overriding health officials’ recommendations. #FallingPrices

I feel if you’re a front line worker (EMS, Police, Hospital), you should be tested daily. If you’re suspected positive you should be quarantined. Knowingly spreading the virus can be compared to deliberate HIV infection. Bringing it into a health care surrounding is abhorrent.
