    Sheís at will. I just didnít know if this opens her up to legal jeopardy if she gets sick or something Iím not even seeing.
    My guess is her hospital is taking that step for a number of reasons. Might be worried Minnesota ultimately counts these as work comp claims. Might be worried family members of patients claim the hospital isnít following best practices. Might just have concluded itís a good idea. Iíd be surprised if theyíre setting up employees for termination. Theyíre going to need all hands on deck.

    Sorry about the mistake regarding your wifeís job. I had it in my head she was a nurse.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope he proves them wrong!

    I saw that and thought- good idea- lets cover why they need all those masks. You asked- let's publish just why they need then you a hole.

    I would think it is to protect from people coming to work sick because they can't afford to stay home.
    They taught us in Nursing School that if you had an assignment that you felt was unsafe but couldn't refuse because they patient would end up without care you should document your concerns and ask it be inserted into your employee file. That way you had documentation you didn't agree but were working under duress. Not sure if that might help

    (and the grammar horse neighed at the run on sentence!)

    injecting a bit of positivity- uncle les is home! He had side effects from the treatment they used so had to wait until he got that resolved but he is HOME!! SO incredibly grateful.

    Prop him up by the jukebox.

    Very sad news. John Deere Green was one of my favorite songs.

    I more feel sorry for the people who would be taking it seriously, had they been told. By the time I heard, we'd been working from home for a week, and it was a while since Governor Whitmer shut the state down.

    Had they gone to the hospital, it would have been the one in Hancock (where I got 10 stitches in my knee almost 40 years ago...).
    Iíve been told todayís case is a Walmart employee ( and really, thatís the only biggish store up here) - so possibly the same patient zero?

    I was telling my wife that it was a good thing it was on FOX. I know some people who will say that it was propaganda by the liberal elite to get you to give up your rights At least with it being on Fox it mitigates that a little.

    Agreed, but itís happened enough and he never gets a time out. Gonna keep happening when thereís no punishment. So I just wonít waste any more time - itís happened in a lot of threads over the years, even really innocent ones.

    I'm with Slappy here. 99% of the time, it's a good site to banter about. I do wish the hammer would come done a little harder at times, but not my site, not my rules, not my place.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
