Hundreds of students and school staff are quarantined as the pandemic intensifies in the Inland Northwest


The Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion, which repre­sents nurses at local hospi­tals and the health district, released a state­ment on Friday calling on elected officials and hospital systems to address concerns about personal protec­tive equip­ment, paid leave for sick nurses and timely testing.

The Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion shares the concerns voiced by public officials about the winter surge of COVID-19 cases and hospi­tal­iza­tions and what this could mean for our health care system,” a state­ment from the union said. If we are to success­fully confront this new surge and maintain staffing, it is critical that nurses and other health care workers are equipped and supported to continue providing care.”
