Our Covid + pts are in private rooms and the nurse(s) assigned to them do not care for onc pts that day. It can be tough to staff when there is only one covid pt

I work on a Pediatric Acute Care Pediatric unit with a mix of Pediatric Oncology, Ortho, General Peds Medical-Surgical patients. Early in the pandemic, we refrained from admitting Covid positive patients to our unit but with this new surge, we have had to occasionally admit Covid positive patients. As the surge continues, we are under the impression that this will be more common but are concerned for our immunocompromised oncology patients. How are other Peds Oncology units handling these admissions or are they sent to another unit? What is your protocol? thank you
