Nursing Homes asked to Redouble Efforts

March 12th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan this week instructed nursing homes and similar facilities to redouble efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In remarks delivered before an emergency Cabinet meeting, the governor said he had met earlier with representatives of the long-term care community. Hogan said he wanted to avoid a situation like that at a Seattle-area nursing home where 19 residents have died and another 31 have tested positive for the virus.  Jeff Metz is co-owner of the Egle Nursing Home in Lonaconing and he tells WCBC News that there have been no reported cases in area nursing homes to date. That said, Metz tells WCBC News that all county nursing homes are following the guidance coming from the centers for Medicaid and Medicare in the state..

    Sure would be nice if we could see a tracking map of all of our counties in Maryland where the COVID 19 virus is! Let’s do something to let the public know. It would settle the panic/ hoarding of disinfectant supplies.
