Virus Task Force to Focus on Nursing Homes

Want to keep our elderly safe, Vice President Pence says

Vice President Mike Pence announced that the Coronavirus Task Force plans to focus on making sure that nursing homes are complying with the new standards of care and infection control to ensure that none of the elderly contract the virus.

“We have raised the bar regarding infectious disease control in our nursing homes, and in addition, [Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services] Administrator Verma will explain how we are going to focus all of our inspection resources for the foreseeable future on compliance with infection control standards,” he said during a White House press briefing.

“Generally, we monitor our nursing homes for abuse and neglect, but at the president’s direction, we’re going to focus exclusively on ensuring that those who are in nursing homes, people operating in nursing homes like many of the CEOs we met with today are complying with the new standards to keep our elderly safe,” the vice president said. That is key, because the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the virus.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Trump, the Justice Department, and others as they look to withhold certain funds from sanctuary cities and states.
  • That Congress would be guided by God on the best laws to put in place. 
  • For these new laws to improve the quality of life in the U.S.
