Thank you for risking your health for us.
As a person with a disability, I am scared of both COVID-19 and also triage protocols. My life is valuable. I don’t want to be denied treatment based on my disability.
Denying or deprioritizing my care because of my disability is discrimination. It is unlawful and unethical.
When making your decisions, please remember:
My ability to heal is directly impacted by your actions and the knowledge that you might discriminate against me because of my disability, race, gender identity, age, or other characteristics.
You deserve life-saving equipment, and so do I.
NOTICE: You may have heard you have “liability immunity” during the pandemic, but that immunity does not apply in all circumstances. My life is valuable. There are people who care about me and depend on me. If you refuse to treat me because of my disability or age, you are causing irreparable harm to me and my loved ones.
