Take Action to Protect Nursing Home Residents

It has been more than a year since COVID-19 came to Connecticut, and since then, more than 14,000 of our state's nursing home residents have been infected with the virus, and more than 3,800 have died. Legislators are considering a bill that would improve nursing home staffing levels, implement stricter infection control measures, ensure that facilities have adequate stockpiles of personal protective equipment, and put protections in place to make sure that residents do not experience the same levels of social isolation that we've seen this year.

Tell legislators to SUPPORT S.B. 1030, An Act Concerning Long-Term Care Facilities. You can send the message below as-is to show your support, or you can edit the message to share your personal thoughts.

Dear Decision Maker,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented public health crisis, and no one has been harder hit than nursing home residents. More than 14,000 Connecticut nursing home residents have contracted the virus since March, and more than 3,800 residents have died. These devastating losses have exposed long-standing and serious deficiencies in the systems that we rely on to serve older adults and people with disabilities.

Nursing home residents and their loved ones cannot wait any longer. I am counting on you and your colleagues to protect residents, support workers, and help families stay connected to their loved ones. As we approach the end of the 2021 legislative session, please take immediate action to pass S.B. 1030.

Sincerely,
