This is the detailed CDC guidance for re-opening America that was shelved by the White House. Nursing is political. We must protect our communities, especially when those in positions of power and decision making willfully ignore science, and refuse to follow public health principles.
The Associated Press obtained a 63-page document titled “Guidance for Opening Up America Again Framework” that is more detailed than other, previously reported segments of the guidance. The source was granted anonymity because they were not authorized to share the document with the press.
