    The headline specifically mentions Covid-19 at a second nursing home. The story makes no mention of the situation at another nursing home. How could a supposed news outlet be this irresponsible? Does anyone proofread this drivel? What is the general public to believe?

    I hesitate to spread rumors but the Health Dept only encourages RUMORS & GOSSIP by withholding pertinent PUBLIC information that could help people make informed decisions. With that said here’s where the internet scuttle butt says is the second nursing home:
