No numbers yet from my usual source however...our CMO updated us via email. We are currently housing 33 COVID patients and we had 82 more test positive from the weekend. And this is only Tuesday!
We have another staff member out with it. We're so shorthanded right now that I have to work the salad bar shift Wed and Fri at 7 AM and part of my job responsibilities is passing breakfast trays to patients. I sure hope that first shot is working. I'm a little nervous. We don't have to pass to any COVID patients cuz the nurses do that. Thank God. We only have one isolation type that we pass too and that's just one that requires a mask only. We have to wear surgical masks and one of those isn't going to be enough for me to feel safe so I will be wearing my cloth mask with a filter in it underneath the surg. mask. Plus the safety glasses. IN EVERY ROOM! I ain't messing around.
So I won't be on for a couple nights this week because I gotta be up before the butt crack of dawn.
Have a great day!
