Dorothy’s Answer

Guidelines are being published daily by U.S. State, County and City officials or websites that provide what is allowed or not allowed given their COVID-19 case levels. There are stricter rules for certain industries, such as hospitals, restaurants, nursing homes, etc. I would say anyone entering the medical field right now is immensely needed to work not only with infectious diseases, but the aging population. Because of this huge demand, you'll be in a great position to find work and be educated on changing regulations with respect to COVID-19 and other health risk factors.

Hi Camila! I would recommend to check CDC and their website because there are updates provided about COVID as conditions change. Each state also has their own regulations with capacity and opening of businesses so definitely check with your local news channel about what is happening in your state. I think this will give the most up to date information about COVID.
In respect to your career choice, I think anesthesiology is a very important part of healthcare and being an anesthesiologist will always be valuable. To pursue this goal you will need to finish college and apply to medical school, and afterwards you will complete residency. You will be a premed student in college as you will take prerequisite courses needed for medical school such as chemistry, biology, physics, etc., in addition with testing for the MCAT exam which is required for entry to medical school. I would recommend to check out AAMC.org when you begin college to gain information about the medical field because this site has great resources and is ultimately the site where you will apply to medical school and use it for beyond such as residency.
I wish you the best!

Aaron’s Answer

Hi Camila,

I currently work at a hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii at Queen’s Medical Center Punchbowl as a foodservice worker in the dietary department delivering and collecting patient meal trays from all areas of the hospital, clean food trays, load and catch dishes from the dishwasher, line trays with a white piece of folder paper, napkin and hand wipes. In my job I also help with clean up after my department cleans trays. As with new rules or regulations due to COVID-19 we have to wear mask, eye protection and gloves every time we deliver and pick up patient meal trays to protect ourselves from being infected with COVID-19. We wear eye protection in conjunction with a masks because our hospital’s infection control team realized not only do you have to protect the nose and mouth from this virus you have to also protect the eyes because the virus can go into the body through the mucus membranes which are located midline close to your nose of your eyes. To wear as eye protection they gave us the option to wear safety glasses or goggles similar to working in a school lab, or a face shield that is made out of clear plastic with a plastic head piece that straps to the forehead. Hope this helps.

-Thank you,
Aaron
