The COVID Task Force announced by President-Elect Joe Biden is staffed by physicians and scientists, but does not include any nurses. Nurses are the largest group of health care employees in the U.S. and work the frontlines of COVID care in hospitals, residential facilities, and the community. Input from nurses is crucial to insure that the recommendations regarding COVID apply to all health care workers. Additionally, nurses are "the most trusted profession" and can work in communities in a public health capacity, even with Americans who at this time do not consider COVID a serious health threat. Nurses can be contact tracers, triage patients in their homes, and educate patients and their families about the best way to prevent the spread of COVID. This Task Force needs a nurse who understands the challenges of frontline care, because American patients deserve the best plan possible for getting COVID under control.
