(OPEN):
NURSING-HOMES CONTINUE TO FACE CORONAVIRUS-OUTBREAKS--BOTH THROUGHOUT MARYLAND AND NATIONWIDE.  THAT'S WHY "A-A-R-P MARYLAND" IS CALLING FOR MORE ACTION FROM CONGRESS.  HANK GREENBERG IS THE GROUP'S STATE-DIRECTOR...

(GREENBERG):
"
RESIDENTS AND STAFF, ALIKE, REMAIN IN DANGER--AS 'COVID-19' CONTINUES TO SPREAD.  HOWEVER, MARYLAND AND OTHER STATES CAN'T FIGHT THIS BATTLE ALONE--WHICH IS WHY MEMBERS-OF-CONGRESS STILL MUST TAKE ACTION.  IN ALL NURSING-HOMES, THERE SHOULD BE REGULAR, ONGOING TESTING OF RESIDENTS AND STAFF, WITH PROMPT RESULTS; ADEQUATE 'PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT' THAT'S ALSO PROPERLY USED; AND DAILY, PUBLIC REPORTING OF CASES AND DEATHS--AS WELL AS COMMUNICATION WITH FAMILIES ABOUT DISCHARGES AND TRANSFERS, AND 'VIRTUAL VISITATION', SO THAT FAMILIES CAN CONNECT WITH THEIR LOVED-ONES."

(CLOSE):
"
A-A-R-P" ALSO HAS ONLINE RESOURCES TO HELP FAMILIES--AT "A-A-R-P"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"NURSING-HOMES".
