It Wasn’t Just Nursing Homes: Gov. Cuomo Also Ordered Disabled Homes to Take in COVID Patients


The state of New York has an ongoing directive that states group housing for those with developmental disabilities cannot require coronavirus testing as grounds for admission and readmission — an order implemented by the Cuomo administration. Data provided to Fox News on Monday from the New York Office for People With Developmental Disabilities shows that 6,900 residents in these homes have been infected with the coronavirus, with 552 deaths, the outlet reported. “These group homes were required to have a process in place to expedite the return of asymptomatic residents from the hospital, who were deemed appropriate for return to their OPWDD certified residence,” a spokeswoman for the office told Fox News.
