PUBLIC WORKERS FEAR COVID-19 INFECTION

This Spring, Miami Public Works employees were active filling potholes, pruning trees, cutting grass, and tending to storm drains amid the coronavirus outbreak. In return, they were provided with bright highlighter-yellow shirts bearing the words “practice social distancing” aimed at promoting the battle against the spread of the coronavirus. However, amid the recent uncontrolled surge in COVID cases throughout Florida, the workers consider this hypocritical, given the fact that their superiors are allegedly ignoring their dire request to impose greater social distancing measures and the use of facial coverings while on the job.

Thus far, about ten workers have tested positive for COVID-19 and most admit that this could have been easily prevented. According to one worker, the use of the shirts was a facade tainted with negligence. Several more workers claimed they were concerned about losing their jobs or being reprimanded for bringing this matter into the public scope. Furthermore, other workers claim that the Miami Public Works managers ordered dozens of workers to report to work to carry out tasks on the same shifts in a five-day work week, which results in overcrowding, especially within city vehicles. All this makes social distancing very difficult to achieve. During June and July, work crews included four or five staff members per service vehicle. The result was an entire work crew testing positive for the coronavirus with one worker having to be admitted to hospital for treatment.

NURSING HOMES AND ASSISTED LIVING CENTERS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Geriatric-Lawyer-Miami-300x300
The United States is new to the complexities of dealing with a major pandemic like COVID-19. Nevertheless, negligence within nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Florida have always been a major concern for operators, staff, family members, and not to mention residents, who deserve and should be provided with quality care.

As everyone knows, the coronavirus places elderly residents at a high risk of suffering serious life-threatening conditions. Thus, all necessary safety precautions must be taken, and strict preventive measures applied to keep nursing home residents safe. Sadly, COVID-19 spreads very quickly from person to person, and within populated common spaces, contracting the coronavirus in a nursing home is likely when the virus goes undetected. Nursing home operators and staff members can unknowingly spread the virus and residents can fall victim to neglect by either not receiving proper care or medical attention, or simply testing positive for COVID-19 in a nursing home. When a nursing home resident becomes infected with coronavirus as a result of negligence by nursing home staff or nursing home operators, the victim may be able to receive compensation for bodily injury or mental harm and any losses sustained from medical expenses. An experienced Personal Injury lawyer may be able to help determine grounds for a Personal Injury Insurance Claim for compensation for nursing home residents or family members.

As Miami-Dade and Broward County shop and restaurant owners look to get back to business, so too are consumers eager to get back to spending, with everyone else just looking to get back to normal. However, that normal we once innocently took for granted, may sadly be but a treasured memory. Fortunately, adjusting to today’s social and individual reality will not require a crash course on life on another planet, but one can surely say that we are taking on a much futuristic demeanor as we walk down the street, drive in our cars, stroll through a mall, dine at a restaurant, or sit in a bar. Regardless, safety and prevention will be the driving force behind these changes, as COVID-19 sets the stage for the new normal.

Florida Department of Health Launches COVID-19 APP

Governor Ron DeSantis is moving forward with a phased reopening plan throughout Florida. The Florida Department of Health introduced an app (The StrongerThanC19) that allows easy-access to the Community Action Survey, which officials believe can help lower the spread of the COVID-19 in Florida. According to the recently published Community Action Survey Report,  many Florida residents don’t respect safety measures aimed at preventing the coronavirus spread among urban populations such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and other cities throughout Miami-Dade and Broward; the hardest hit counties by COVID-19.
