Well, I have a vested interest in this, my dad is in an independent/assisted living community. This facility has been taking very stringent procedures for two months now. We do have to go there to fill his pills and try to only go in once a month. They take our temperature and ask where we've been and why we are there. Everyone is wearing masks. At this point they are confined to their apartments, but the folks that work there do things like puzzles or zoom calls with family regularly. We talk to him daily. They were responsible and wanted to keep their residents safe.

A friend's Mother is in a nearby assisted living home. They have not been allowed past the front entrance in almost a month and a half. They drop off drugs, snacks, books, etc. in the vestibule. Everything coming in is sanitized and shelved. The Mother gets it all the next day. They are effectively placing items in 1 day quarantine.
Staff does notify the Mother and assist her to the window in her room where they can wave at each other.

The only reason we are allowed in is because we are considered essential. The CNAs are not allowed to open pill bottles, but they can take the pills out of the daily dispenser and give them to my dad. So we have to go in and refill the dispensers. We have enough for a month's worth of meds. We also have to work with the restrictions of insurance, they won't fill some of the meds for more than 30 days and we can't get them too soon or insurance will refuse to pay for them.

..what we are seeing is a complete lack of competent leadership at the federal level which has lead to a system of failures and nursing homes are paying an extreme price. Have lost three people to date who were at NC facilities. While I do think Cooper patched his response it’s not solely on him as the boys Berger,Tillis and Burr are no where to be found...

Sad part that most don’t realize is that this kicked America to the side once and for all as the go to for the world. China now holds that spot in Asia, Eastern Europe, and Africa. Think about that which is a way bigger issue than Coopers minor faults. The lack of funding to the WHO is now a gift to China as a compassionate new World leader who successfully fought the virus to boot.

Our leaders worried about who signed the stimulus checks while China muscle us out of the way and controls your medicine and future.

Why wouldn't the people that run the nursing home with the most vested interesting in taking care of their clients be the FIRST one's to realize that and handle it?
I think you are "treeing" the wrong animal.
The same restrictions he put in place last week (after the outbreaks occurred). No community meals. Taking temperatures of employees coming in.

Restricting access didnt keep employees from coming in with it. Cooper needed to require more restrictions...to protect the people that LIVE there. Nursing homes are not a normal "business" like a restaurant or grocery store in terms of restrictions. It is where these highly susceptible elderly folks LIVE. Its their HOME.

And somehow that's Cooper's fault???

Dem or Rep, doesn't matter. The nursing home facility is entrusted with protecting their PAID patrons, not the gov'nor.

There was a report back in March that said that. It may have changed now, but it shows the relatively small impact it has on kids.

Again, the facility my dad is in has been doing that since early March. On their own. They didn't have be ordered to do it because they take their responsibility seriously. They also check the residents' temps twice a day.

That's correct. My niece is the OT at a rehab facility in another state. Before ordered they started taking employees' temperatures as well as the patients' temperatures. My niece and 3 other employees were found and sent home and for testing as well as 2 patients. My niece returned to work today. Her husband is quarantined for another week. He can work from home and has been.

The companies who own and operate these various types of facilities know what they should do. It's not such a big deal that they should need to be ordered to do it.
