Hochul considering deployment of National Guard to address health worker shortage

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) is considering deploying the medically trained members of the National Guard ahead of an anticipated shortage of health care workers.

Hochul released a comprehensive plan to address staff shortages in New York facilities Saturday, amid concerns that a large number of health care employees will not meet Monday's vaccine deadline.

"We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal," Hochul said, according to a release on the state website. "I am monitoring the staffing situation closely, and we have a plan to increase our health care workforce and help alleviate the burdens on our hospitals and other health care facilities.
