Governor Ducey: Time to Protect Nursing Home Residents
Nursing homes continue to be a hotbed for the coronavirus infection. In Maricopa County, 65% of all COVID-19 deaths are from nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
Gov. Ducey must act now to protect Arizonans living in nursing homes, assisted living and other long-term care facilities with:
• Ongoing, regular testing of all long-term care facility residents and staff
• More personal protective equipment for residents and staff
• Daily public reporting of cases and deaths
• Virtual visits for families
Tell Gov. Ducey it’s time to protect residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities now.
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
