Safety of Nurses Working During Covid?


Hi. I'm a new nurse starting work on the Med Surg Unit. My employer said I may have to work with the occasional Covid patient. Would you guys say that nurses are generally safe working in hospitals during Covid as long as they have proper PPE? Thanks everyone and stay safe!

Nurses with actual good PPE working with a reasonable patient load in a facility with good policies, practices, and procedures will be reasonably safe.
