Essential workers are in critical condition
As our government debates COVID-related legislation and an economic stimulus, it must specifically address the needs of the essential workers that are keeping our country and economy afloat. Throughout the nation, COVID-19 is exerting profound damage to the essential workforce. These workers deserve protection and support commensurate with the jobs they are performing. As critical care and community health physicians in Texas and New York, respectively, we strongly believe that if our essential workforce is unsupported, the rest of the country will suffer.
