Connecticut Officials Remove All Patients From Nursing Home Where Four Residents Have Died From COVID-19

  • September 17, 2020

The Hartford (CT) Courant (9/16, Altimari) reports Connecticut’s “Department of Public Health Wednesday took the extraordinary step of removing all of the patients from a Norwich nursing home where four have died and at least 27” have been infected amid a COVID-19 outbreak. The move “comes days after the state appointed a temporary manager to oversee the troubled nursing home, where state inspection reports have uncovered a broad range of alleged missteps related to managing the spread of COVID-19 at the facility.” The process of relocating “the 53 residents is expected to take several weeks.”
