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.

Is it a dig deal to check temperatures, when the companies know that it should be done? My answer is still no. The companies know that they are responsible for the patients or clients, depending on which type of facility it is. They need to check temperatures. Do you really think that Roy Cooper or any other governor should have to tell them that?

You need to try to comprehend what Southbound was saying. It's not such a big deal for the facilities to take the temps of employees and residents. They shouldn't need to be ordered to do it, it's their freaking business to care for these people!

Thank you.

The big difference between nursing homes and assisted living facilities and rehab centers is that the ages of the clients in a rehab center is more of a mix in the rehab centers. The care concerning keeping the covid out should be the same. Monitor everyone's temperatures. Test if there is a suspicious temperature. No governor should have to spell that out. It's common sense.

At this point, everyone in a nursing home/assisted living facility should just be tested. In some cases 98% of people arent showing symptoms that have it. Quarantine those that have it. Its their home. Governor should supply the tests.

Prison population should get the same treatment.

These folks have no place to get away from it.

Are you even listening? Most places HAVE quarantined the residence. My dad has not been allowed to leave his "apartment" for weeks now. They bring his meals to his room, they come in and set up zoom calls, they come in and help him bathe a few times a week and every day, twice a day they give him his med. Are you saying they should not be allowed any of those things if they actually have the virus? Do you realize how many people live in assisted/independent living in NC? Maybe when they have enough tests, then yes, they should do that, but right now there aren't even enough tests for those who are showing symptoms.

Regarding the prisons. Those poor folks are stuck in small spaces, too, but many don't have the advocacy those in senior/rehab/assisted living have. Yes, many have committed crimes, most of which don't deserve a death sentence, but seriously, what can we do? They are letting out the non violent criminals, but who knows if they weren't already infected?

Nursing Homes are dangerous. A Nursing Home in Pleasant Garden in Guilford County has 30 positive cases of the Coronavirus. Guilford County leads the Triad in cases and deaths...up to 15 deaths. However social distancing and early action in Greensboro/Guilford County has kept case numbers much lower than Durham, Raleigh and Charlotte. Guilford County is reporting around 226 cases. Winston-Salem/Forsyth County has 141 cases. Guilford County unfortunately is second in the state after Mecklenburg County in deaths though.

Bigger issue is we have the President who just fired his top vaccine person so back to square one. The vulnerability of the elderly in our State is not a result of policy by Cooper it’s a result of all State leadership not having a plan that echos the federal level.

Nursing Home residents are currently 15% of all cases in NC. They make up .35% of all NC residents. That's less than 1%.

Because of their condition, age, etc...they currently make up 38% of all Covid-19 deaths in North Carolina.
