ALBANY – The State Health Department has released a report reviewing nursing home deaths.
The report says thousands of cases stemmed from workers and visitors bringing the virus into the facilities.
And, that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order in March, directing nursing homes to admit COVID patients, had little impact on the outbreaks.
State legislators, however, are still calling for an independent investigation to further examine the thousands of nursing home deaths.
