Do I have to go to work during a pandemic?
Residents have dual roles as both trainees and health care providers. As members of the medical profession, we are all called upon to provide care to the best of our ability during a crisis. Sometimes this means taking on elevated personal risk.
Individual residents also have the right to refuse unsafe work. Certain residents may be considered higher-risk including those who have chronic respiratory disease, those who are immunocompromised, those who are pregnant, and those who cohabitate with any of the above. You are not expected to serve if you fall ill or become a vector for infection.
