  1. I’d really like to know how the residents were exposed. They are not allowed to even leave their rooms so, how did this happen. A staff member had to bring it in. If they were wearing their PPE’s and taking the precautions they are suppose to this shouldn’t have happened.

    1. Also as a family member why are they not allowed to tell me what wing was exposed. All they will tell me is that my mom is not positive at this iui s time.
