    Under the state’s revised policies, incoming travelers from California, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, and Ohio will no longer be required to quarantine for two weeks before entering the tri-state area. The Northern Mariana Islands have also been removed, while Puerto Rico has been added back to the list. "When other states and territories make progress fighting COVID-19, that's good for New York and while I am glad to see areas removed from the travel advisory list, it still remains far too long," Governor Cuomo said. "Make no mistake: We must continue to be New York Tough and stay smart. Wearing...

Should the DOJ consider charging him with manslaughter in the deaths of thousands in Nursing Homes in New York state? Some of these STUPID governors should be held accountable for their actions - especially when they cause thousands to die...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claimed Tuesday that President Trump “caused” the coronavirus outbreak in New York by not banning travel from Europe sooner -- the latest in an escalation of words between the politicians. "Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York,” Cuomo said during a press briefing. “That is a fact. It’s a fact that he admitted, and the CDC admitted, and Fauci admitted.” He also slammed the president for calling coronavirus the “China virus.”

Investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the state attorney general’s office and other agencies executed the search warrant at Brighton Rehabilitation and Wellness Center northeast of Pittsburgh, said Scott Brady, U.S. Attorney for Pennsylvania’s Western District.

    During a press conference on Thursday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) reacted to the Centers for Disease Control telling states to be ready to distribute a coronavirus vaccine by November by remarking, “How convenient. It’s going to be an Election Day miracle drug.” Cuomo also announced that the New York State Department of Health will undertake a review of “all the protocol and research by the FDA and whatever federal authorities say it’s safe and effective” before they recommend that New Yorkers take the vaccine.

    As COVID-19 was ravaging nursing home populations, which saw over half of the state’s pandemic deaths, the Illinois Department of Public Health chose for 3 1/2 months not to investigate 272 complaints of abuse and neglect. IDPH failed to investigate complaints between March 15 and June 30 despite laws requiring it to do so, the department admitted in a press release issued Aug. 21. The acknowledgement comes a month after IDPH fired Debra Bryars, an agency deputy director who ran the Office of Health Care Regulation. The agency had also placed Aimee Isham, who oversaw the Bureau of Long-Term Care,...

    ...“Protecting the rights of some of society’s most vulnerable members, including elderly nursing home residents, is one of our country’s most important obligations,” Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Division Eric Dreiband said in a statement. “We must ensure they are adequately cared for with dignity and respect and not unnecessarily put at risk.” The DOJ’s Civil Rights Division is considering launching investigations under the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA), which protects the civil rights of persons in state-run nursing homes, among other institutions. “The Civil Rights Division seeks to determine if the state orders requiring admission of...

    The Justice Department is seeking data about “orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents,” sending letters Wednesday to the governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Officials say Wednesday that the Justice Department’s civil rights division is evaluating whether to initiate investigations under a federal law that protects the rights of people in state-run nursing homes and other facilities. Prosecutors are trying to determine whether state orders requiring admission of COVID-19 patients to nursing homes could have led to deaths. Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband says the federal government must...

    Today the Justice Department requested COVID-19 data from the governors of states that issued orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan required nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients to their vulnerable populations, often without adequate testing. For example, on March 25, 2020, New York ordered: “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to [a nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. [Nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for...

    NY Post ^ | August 21, 2020 | Post Editorial Board
    Will Gov. Andrew Cuomo allow anything resembling an outside review of New York’s coronavirus nursing-home horrors? The test case is a bipartisan bill from state Sen. Jim Tedisco and Assemblyman Ron Kim. At the height of the pandemic, the state’s March 25 mandate put infected patients among the elderly — who Cuomo has acknowledged are the most vulnerable to the virus. The gov insists any criticism of that order is pure politics. The bill calls for an independent investigation to, as sponsors put it, “fully examine policies that led to the deaths of thousands of New Yorkers in nursing-home facilities”...

Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday said he should have issued a statewide mask mandate earlier, noting that doing so would have made a “dramatic difference” in the fight against the coronavirus. During an interview on public radio, the governor was asked about missteps he may have taken in the response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    HARRISBURG — For the first months of the pandemic, as state officials took sweeping and unprecedented actions to combat COVID-19, the public was cut off from a crucial tool to understand how those life-and-death decisions were being made. The Wolf administration in mid-March stopped responding to public records requests, a way for people to obtain copies of government data, emails, and other records from state agencies. Without that, Pennsylvanians were forced to rely on elected officials to share as much — or as little — information as they chose. When the state’s open records process resumed in May, it was...

    At least 2,497 residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities in Ohio have died with the coronavirus, according to new data from the Ohio Department of Health. That’s an additional 70 deaths reported since last week. Nursing home and long-term care facility residents continue to account for roughly two-thirds of all COVID-19 deaths in Ohio. Overall, 52% of Ohio’s coronavirus deaths are by those 80 years or older, with another 25% by those ages 70 to 79. The state began tracking nursing home cases by facility on April 15, reporting 9,768 cases to patients and 5,266 to staff...

    State pols from both sides of the aisle have called for investigations into the conditions that led to at least 6,400 COVID-linked deaths in the facilities, including what role a March 25 mandate from Cuomo’s Department of Health barring homes from turning away coronavirus-positive patients may have played. “No, I wouldn’t do an investigation,” Cuomo flatly told reporters on a Monday conference call. Despite the bipartisan support for a probe in Albany, the Democrat governor continued to insist that the calls for accountability are politically-motivated.

    New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there. So far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire. A running tally by The Associated Press...

    Andrew Cuomo's got a load of nerve. Imagine being one of the relatives of the thousands of elderly nursing home residents who died as a result of their residences becoming sealed incumbators for COVID, which Andrew Cuomo literally ordered. These people were banned from visits from their own families for their own 'safety' they said. Yet it was Potemkin stuff, they had no protection from COVID, as they had to breathe the air of coughing, infected patients all around them, with absolutely no way to get away from it. Once they got it, they died alone. It's the biggest scandal...
