Health care workers outside California interviewed by NBC News say they're encountering similar barriers. A nurse in Kansas City, Missouri said workers are allowed only one N95 mask per day. A nurse in Miami said her hospital refused to even provide the number of staff members who have tested positive. The Washington State Nurses Association said it went to the state's Department of Health for the information to no avail; the department said hospitals haven't provided it with the number of health care workers infected with COVID-19.
