Everyone at Nursing Home Has Been Tested

April 27th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The number of COVID-19 cases at a Cumberland nursing facility jumped dramatically during the course of the past week- and has become a concern for many in the community.

        Hmmm. Could it had possibly been a visitor who was unaware that they were effected? And if it was an employee, maybe they didn’t know they had it. Everything is not always somebody’s fault, unless maybe you’re talking about China’s Communistic government.
