Petition Change COVID-19 critical workers list to include all veterinary staff
Place all veterinary staff on the COVID-19 critical worker list. Veterinary medicine and the welfare of all animals is essential and shouldn't be undervalued.
The job cannot be performed from home. Critical worker status needs to include vets, vet nurses and support staff to ensure animal welfare.
Currently only vets involved in food production and those providing emergency services are classified as key workers in England.
In Wales all vets, veterinary technicians and support staff are included.
All veterinary staff should be added to the COVID-19 critical workers list in all of the UK.
