Health care workers hold a placard that says From Heroes to Zeroes during a protest against hospital under-staffing and insufficient personal protective equipment for doctors and nurses treating COVID-19 patients amid the coronavirus pandemic. The protest took place outside Saint Joseph Medical Center hospital in Burbank, Calif. on May 19.

“If that rule had gone into effect, then every hospital, every nursing home would essentially have to have a plan,” said David Michaels, former Occupational Safety and Health Administration chief.
