  • August 26, 2020

The AP (8/25, Alonso-Zaldivar) reports, “Threatening fines and funding cut-offs, the Trump administration on Tuesday issued new COVID-19 requirements for nursing homes and hospitals, prompting immediate pushback from beleaguered industries.” The CMS “announced it will require facilities to test staff regularly or face fines,” and “officials also reinforced a reporting mandate for hospitals.” The AP adds, “The nursing home industry said it supports mandatory testing as long as facilities are given what they need to comply with requirements.”
