State Report: Workers & Visitors Fueled Nursing Home Deaths, Not Cuomo Order

Emergency medical workers transport a patient at the Cobble Hill Health Center on April 18, 2020, in Brooklyn, New York. The nursing home has had at least 55 COVID-19 reported deaths.

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.
