"67 for more Still too high for 65. You're just over a 10 minute warning. Dr. Thank you, Stephanie. It is 503 right now. New on daybreak this morning, the country's largest nurses union is criticizing the CDC snu Basque guidance the national nurses United, says the CDC Is putting health care workers in danger. The co president of the union believes three things need to happen before lifting mandates when we have a policy in place that make sure that all communities of color have the vaccine available to them when we have clear guidance that has been worked out with the state, so they're not scrambling. Like they have been in the last few days to come up with their plan and make sure that everybody that needs the vaccine has gotten According to the union, the CDC created confusion by changing guidance several times. Under new guidelines. People who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask outdoors and in most endorsed situations unless your specific county has stricter requirements. Happening today, a milestone in the pandemic. President Biden says 60% of adults will have at least one shot, according to the CDC is latest count. There's on Lee 10.2% to go. The current number is 59.8% of adults. Now the percentage of people 12 years and older who are at least partially vaccinated is 47. A half percent. Vaccinations are part of what drives the CDC is decisions, and Darryl Forges explains the mask guidelines are not sitting well with everyone. One. For the first time in months, many Americans are feeling mask freedom if you feel comfortable, just great, but the CBC's sudden updated mass guidelines for the fully vaccinated Left others apprehensive. I don't think enough people vaccinated right now. It's very confusing for people. We have questions right now from our patients from our families, many health care professionals, employers, state and local officials still trying to figure out how to handle the changes. It was a little bit of whiplash for the American public. In terms of them saying just a week before, keep your mask on. And then all of a sudden they're saying now you could take them off. Former Surgeon General Drum, Adam says, leaving mass policy decisions upto local State governments is adding to the confusion, The CDC says that the changes will be a slow process. The science now shows that your vaccination protects you as well as being masked or better than being masked. So you can protect yourself from seriously illness from covert by getting vaccinated less.

Coronavirus among health workers: Exposure, lack of testing

"Workers are still having a hard time getting coronavirus tests and as NPR's Laurel Wamsley reports, the lack of testing means there could be lots of asymptomatic healthcare workers caring Pretty sick people. In a recent round table with Joe Biden. Mary Turner, a nurse in Minnesota, told the president elect something he found surprising. Do you know that I have not been tested yet? And I have been on the front lines in the ice to you since February. You're kidding me. No guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control say that healthcare personnel should be tested if they're symptomatic or haven't known exposure to the corona virus. But treating covert 19 patients while wearing personal protective equipment, or pee pee Doesn't count as exposure that warrants testing. A recent survey by national nurses United, the nation's largest nurses union, found that only 42% of registered nurses in hospitals said they had ever been tested for covert 19. It continues to amaze me that we are not doing this. Michael Mina is an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health. He says, Well, PPE generally offers good protection. There have been outbreaks of hospitals at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where Minna runs the virology Lab. One outbreak involved 42 employees and 15 patients. Hospital blamed patients not wearing masks, staff without eye protection and employees failing to social distance while eating. Now that is an outbreak that shouldn't have happened. I believe very firmly that we would not have seen an outbreak grow so so quickly and it wouldn't have even been able to get started. If we were doing frequent testing. There are so many ways that hospital could be doing this and they're not Ministers. Hospitals could either use rapid auntie gin tests or pool PCR tests to do screening for the virus more cheaply they get Have ever on swab and put 50 swabs that a time into 12 and run that one tube and cool the test for very, very cheap. You could do a whole hospital departments with one Past for 50 Bucks a day. California State Health Department announced new guidance two weeks ago that strongly recommends weekly testing of healthcare personnel. But hospitals have struggled just to get enough tests for patients. Susan Butler. Wu is associate professor of clinical pathology at USC, and she directs the clinical microbiology lab at a large hospital in Los Angeles. So we were to take something like this recommendation. Where, Okay, let's say we screen everybody weekly. There's very few clinical hospital labs that would be able to have that much testing available to be able to do that. Color. Woo says that her hospital there are 10,000 workers that would likely need testing under the new guidance, and she says, without operational support from the state, the new protocols are going to cause problems. Including greater testing backlogs, but as a country because we don't have a national plan or national strategy, these air this This is the situation we find ourselves. Football players can get tests people choosing to socialize and wanting to feel safer doing so, even though it's a pandemic can get tests but a program to test the country's health care workers. Nope. Many nurses and doctors suspect hospitals are worried that widespread testing could reveal asymptomatic cases and then result in quarantining critically needed staff. And for Mina, the Harvard epidemiologist, The lack of regular testing of health care workers raises other questions. There's a clear problem when we're saying that the greatest risk people, the people who are at the greatest risk to themselves and to their patients or the health care workers, and so that's why we're going to give them vaccines before anyone else. But then when we don't have a vaccine, and it's just testing, we say, don't worry about it. It's not a big deal. You don't need to be tested. It's an approach, he says. That doesn't make sense.

Who for guidelines to treat the corona virus? It was new then. It wasn't even a public health emergency according to the W. H. O. They waited and waited but didn't get a response. Does any that? Lack of response wasn't surprising. Unfortunately maybe because the nursing profession is majority are women perhaps dismissed it like a bunch of men whining and complaining. Do you feel like that. Has that been something that you've felt historically as a nursing union leader that that nurses are are treated differently because it it tends to be a majority female profession. I guess I do believe that. That's the case. If you look at the firefighters and the police force they do have presumptive eligibility that anything that they acquire it is something to to say that they acquired it on the job. If firefighter contracts cancer lung cancer resumed that he got it from working as a firefighter. I'm not condoning that they should not be getting it. I'm happy for them that they have it. But nurses as a profession do not have presented eligibilities presumptive eligibility determined. Had to look up but in practice. It's pretty simple in California. Resenting works as a nurse cops and firefighters get workers comp for illnesses or injuries. They might have picked up on the job without proof. Nurses do not and right now more than ever. That doesn't seem fair. Yes and for a long time. They've always been called the first responders. Healthcare workers have not been considered first responders until this happened..

"Yet. Just the the the the description of the policies, and of course, the legislature will have a lot to do with this. And the economy will have a lot to do with it as well, we've seen some real turbulence on Wall Street and in some of the markets around the world. And so that has to be a cautionary note for the new governor. And I think he's also going to be very mindful Gavin Newsom, we'll be of not blowing it I've not just spending the money and. Developing a reputation for not being able to manage a budget. Well, he does have a huge majorities of Democrats in the legislature. You can be sure as I imagine Sean Walsh will be happy to tell you that the Democrats have a big appetite for spending and they're going to have their own priorities. Some of which will overlap with the new governor. But this will be a new set of priorities. It'll be interesting to see what he says today in his inaugural speech, and what he says in the coming days and weeks and months about things like high speed rail and the twin tunnels in the delta which were priorities for Jerry Brown, but they may not be forever Newsom. Well, I want to talk about his priorities and talk about them with you. But here he is talking about the challenges. Many state residents face as they seek the California dream. But let's be honest. There's no doubt about this. The dream is still too distant for too many where a land of plenty. But we are far from perfect too. Many Californians are being priced out of housing healthcare and higher education. Too. Many workers are feeling the ever tightening squeeze of automation and wage stagnation. Too. Many children are growing up in poverty and starting school from behind in many ways in many places, we are simultaneously the richest and the poorest state kind of lays it out there, Scott. And I think many of the promises that have been made are sort of implicit in. What we just heard? He's in fact, said ironclad single payer to the nurses union. He did. But you know, he has also been a little more, shall we say realistic about that in recent months, he would like to make progress on that. But I think and I think. The nurses understand too that there isn't going to be single payer healthcare in California this year, or maybe even next year or the year after that. But they want to see some progress. And I think Newsome is committed to at least giving it a shot. What I think you're gonna see really that'll be the biggest difference between the outgoing Brown administration. And the Newsome administration is the focus on children. He has of course, for young children himself that in and of itself is a big optics different difference from Jerry Brown who does not have any kids. And we've seen those kids front and center over the weekend at various events that the governor elect his held me scrap the Newsom family moving to Sacramento, they are they think they struggled with that. Because they didn't want to uproot the kids from school in Marin, but they're going to be moving into the mansion Dan downtown Sacramento, I was talking to Gavin Newsom an hour or so ago, and he said he's only been in their once it's a little odd to be moving into a house that you barely know. But that's what they're going to be doing. I think even later today. Let me just ask a couple of things. That might distinguish him from his predecessor Jerry Brown. One thing that seems to be in the offing aside from the concern about childhood education and about community colleges in healthcare, and so forth is also an environmental concern because Jerry Brown was okay with fracking. He was okay. To a great extent with drilling. Not so clear that Gavin Newsom who's going to follow suit. Is it? Well, I think yeah. There's going to be certainly pressure on him from the so-called keep it in the ground lobby. They don't wanna see any oil extracted from California knocking Jerry Brown has taken a more, shall we say realistic perspective on that saying that look if we don't take it out of the ground people are still going to drive their cars. They're still going to be a demand for oil. It'll just be shipped in from other states, and that has its own environmental risks as well. So I think you may see this new governor back away from fracking a little bit. Maybe put more regulations on it or even it as they've done in some states. But I'm not sure that's going to be necessarily a top priority and the oil industry for all of its problems, and there are many environmentally speaking. It does provide a lot of jobs and a lot of revenue for counties, like, you know, Kern county, even LA county, some of those counties that you know, are really big and oil production. I didn't California's a second biggest oil producing state in the country. We can expect him to continue to be head of the resistance says. The New Yorker put it. Well, certainly in his speech today. We've seen excerpts of it. He is going to lay out a strong contrast between California, which is open to immigrants open to new ideas embracing diversity. He has found a pretty good foil in Donald Trump who is of course, extremely unpopular in California. But he's going to have to do more than that. And as Jerry Brown quickly figured out, you need the federal government at times, especially in a state like California, which is prone to one disaster or another. And so I would imagine he'll pick his battles. You know, you do have to pick up the phone sometimes and ask for an emergency declaration or emergency funding from the White House. So you don't want to you know, you don't wanna burn that bridge. I should say that his ex wife, Kimberly Guilfoil is also dating Donald Trump junior. So that might be a back channel into the Oval Office.
