Oregon oncology nurse is on administrative depart after bragging about violating COVID-19 pointers

As the Salem Statesman Journal reports, they are trying to find out during the examination of the hospital which patients and staff have come into contact with the nurse concerned.

If you're wondering how the hospital became aware of this video, it is apparently due to the number of people who commented on the hospital's social media, including its Facebook page. Although the original video was deleted, some reaction videos on TikTok have also gone viral.

As we know, coronavirus cases are increasing. As the specialist in infectious diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the other day said, we might even see a "spike in cases" in the weeks after Thanksgiving, when a disappointing number of people still traveled and joined families despite the pandemic. In the colder months and even more holidays, it is more important than ever to encourage the wearing of masks, practicing social distancing, and hand washing as basic preventive measures to contain the spread of the virus.

Of course, as Daily Kos reported, countless medical professionals risk their lives every day to fight the pandemic. In fact, a number of doctors and nurses have died from the virus themselves. With case numbers soaring, this is nowhere near the right time to joke about guidelines – especially when you are in a position of relative authority and people may be taking your words as a sign that it is okay to travel or be maskless to travel.
