I have recently been informed of a petition to the Virginia Board of Medicine, Petition #362 "Prohibition of requirements for mask wearing, receipt of vaccines, and disclosure of vaccine status to receive medical care".
I object to passing this petition in that:
I oppose any regulation which would forbid health care providers from following health department and CDC guidance.
I oppose regulations which would make it impossible for health care providers to do everything they can to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.
I oppose regulations which would undermine access to health care for immune-compromised patients or those with comorbidities.
I oppose regulations which would make it impossible for health care providers to choose not to treat patients who will not share their full health histories.
