Repeal the Emergency or Disaster Treatment Protection Act
When the final state budget was being crafted in late March, language was included that would grant immunity to nursing homes and other healthcare facilites related to treatment of COVID-19 patients. Since then, thousands of residents have died from the effects of the coronavirus in New York's nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
Please send a message to your New York State Senator and Assemblymember, as well as Governor Cuomo, urging them to repeal the immunity language included in the state budget.
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.
