New York State Department of Health Releases Advisory Prohibiting Nursing Homes From Denying Admission Due to Coronavirus

Once again, we have a politician making policy decisions without the benefit of reason.  Incredibly, Governor Cuomo (of New York) has directed that New York nursing homes CANNOT deny admission or re-admission from a hospital in instances where there is either a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 or a suspected case of COVID-19.  If such a decision is enforced, it will lead to unnecessary additional affliction and death from the disease.  Irresponsible decisions, such as this, will only serve to prolong this unprecedented pandemic.
