General Hospital spoilers tease that one of the hottest topics burning up the internet and soap Twitter in particular recently is if Steve Burton is leaving General Hospital! Here’s what we do know on the subject.
General Hospital Spoilers – Disney, The Parent Company Of ABC Issued A Vaccine Mandate
General Hospital viewers know that at least in the United States, a vaccine mandate was issued by the president stating that companies of one-hundred or more employees must be fully vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus. Fully vaccinated means at least one Johnson and Johnson shot, or one Moderna or Pfizer shot plus two boosters. Disney, the parent company of ABC, was being pro-active in issuing their own vaccine mandate ahead of President Biden’s.
Prior to the mandate being issued, any employee including actors, set people, camera people, etcetera had to be tested every day they came onto the set or into the studio, in this case being Prospect Park Studios in Hollywood, California. Steve Burton, who as General Hospital viewers know plays Jason Morgan, had tested positive for Covid-19, although he had no symptoms back in August.
General Hospital Spoilers – It Is Not Known If Steve Burton Got The Shot Or Not
General Hospital viewers should know that according to the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, if a person was created for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, he or she should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. It is not known whether Steve received this treatment or not, but if he did, having to have the shots by the first of November would be cutting it a little close. The guidance also says those who have tested positive but have no symptoms should wait until they meet the criteria for vaccination.
General Hospital viewers do know according to previous proven reports that Steve had no symptoms, and the criteria he’d have to meet to have been vaccinated by November 1st would have been to have isolated himself and then if he continued to have no symptoms, he could be with others after 10 days have passed since he had a positive viral test for COVID-19. If Steve fell in the latter, then he would have been able to get the shot by the deadline.
General Hospital Spoilers – Many Sources Have Claimed To Know Steve Burton Was Fired For Not Getting The Covid 19 Shots
General Hospital viewers who have been following this hotbed story on Twitter know that many have claimed that they have inside information regarding Steve’s status with the show. There are no clues from either Steve, any of the members of Port Chuck, or anyone else with General Hospital who has verified the rumors. Even Maurice Benard, who plays Sonny Corinthos, denied knowing anything about Steve’s firing when asked on a recent podcast.
Even the usually outspoken Nancy Lee Grahn would not verify if Steve was let go, when someone asked her in a recent tweet if Steve and Ingo Rademacher who plays Jasper “Jax” Jacks were fired. She only verified the November 1st requirement of showing a vaccine card, and said it wasn’t her place to say and that fans should ask them. So, if fans’ enquiring minds want to know if Steve is leaving General Hospital, they can tweet him, go to his Facebook or Instagram account and ask. All three mention he’s with General Hospital and he hasn’t changed it yet.
