Retired doctors/doctors from other countries needed

The Governor issued an executive order permitting doctors who are retired or from other countries to join the battle against COVID-19. The order provides them immunity for civil liability for good faith efforts of providing COVID-19 care. Individuals can sign up here. Not covered under the order, but also needed are students in the last year of medical studies.
