They can apply for a reasonable accommodation.  We have a Committee that reviews such requests.  If you email me, Ican send you a sample of our application form.

Dear all,

I am curious to know how you are handling requests for reassignments away from caring for COVID-19 patients for employees who must attend to individuals (family members, clients, etc.) who are immunosuppressed. We are getting requests from providers of such individuals asking that our employees who care for these family members/clients be assigned to work not involving COVID-19 patients.
