South Carolina: Please Stay Home for Our Healthcare Workers

By now, you have probably seen hundreds of photographs on social media of nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals holding signs reading: “I stayed at work for you. You stay at home for us.” Healthcare professionals around the world have taken to social media to ask others to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19 and thereby protect our communities and protect our healthcare workers.

Our healthcare professionals — everyone from doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists to first responders like EMTs and firefighters —are facing a heightened risk of contracting coronavirus from the exposures they face at work. While the average citizen can eliminate the risk of contracting coronavirus by staying home and not interacting with others, healthcare professionals do not have that luxury. To reduce the spread of coronavirus, we all need to stay home to the greatest extent possible.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we have a long history of being concerned about our broader community in addition to our lawyers and employees. We are a part of the Lowcountry community and feel we are indebted to our community for having supported our firm for nearly 100 years. We also all owe a deep debt to our healthcare workers who are risking their lives and tirelessly fighting this pandemic. For several weeks now, our firm has committed to having our lawyers and employees work from home. We are deeply concerned for the safety of our community’s healthcare professionals and the health of our broader community. We hope that everyone will heed the requests of our healthcare professionals for us to all stay home and stop the spread of the coronavirus.
