    Here is a suggestion for a proactive measure, that hopefully, won’t be needed, but might be easy to accomplish in case a shortage of healthcare manpower arises. My office, ophthalmology, is closed for at least two weeks, and probably more per AAO recommendations that only emergent/urgent patients are seen – which we will be screening via telephone calls. There are many MD’s like me, who will be free to help with any manpower shortages, and even though we may be in different specialties, are easily and quickly trainable to assume some non-critical duties. Perhaps, having a list already prepared of those who would be willing and available to help, as well as making that known to other members/hospital systems would be of benefit?
