Nonlocal nurses blast CDC for bowing to hospital pressure

by Ruth Leubecker

Last week’s National Day of Action for Maine’s nurses was aiming to focus on holding hospitals accountable for staffing shortages, but instead veered onto another topic. 

“The major issue is the CDC weakening the COVID isolation guidelines,” explained Jennifer Nappi, spokesman for the Maine State Nursing Association. “We want them to make these decisions based on science, not what’s good for the industry. Shortening the isolation time down to five days during the most contagious variant is not a smart decision.”
