“In Douglas County, we know that pandemic recovery is dependent on workforce and staffing,” said Commissioner Abe Laydon, Board Chair. “If you are a frontline healthcare worker that left your job at a hospital due to fatigue, lack of childcare, or retirement, our county’s hospitals, in particular, need you. Let’s roll up our sleeves together and get back to work.”
