Field Hospitals

We need detailed, and rehearsed, plans for the rapid set up of field hospitals in every community in case hospitals overflow. Actually set them up whenever it looks like there might not be enough beds within a month.

We need to make moving to a field hospital for post-ICU Covid recovery mandatory now. Doctors and nurses need to be in charge of triage, not patients.

Every community needs a place or places for new Covid patients to go when they can't manage their care at home during the first few days of infection, but don't yet need hospitalization. Empty dorms, empty school gymnasiums, whatever's available. Nurses could supervise CNA's who have recovered from Covid and want to help out in places like this.
