Nursing Homes & COVID with AARP / Rep. Michelle Cook – Junior Achievement GFC – Save A Suit

Our focus on the issue of COVID-19 outbreaks in nursing homes and care facilities across Connecticut starts with a national expert from AARP talking about how that organization is pursuing legislation to better support and protect residents of those facilities.

Then we’ll take a very personal look at a tragic COVID-19 nursing home experience that affected State Rep Michelle Cook of Torrington, and how her experience helped initiate a sweeping investigation into why so many seniors were being infected by and dying from it.

We’ll follow touching base with Junior Achievement of Greater Fairfield County to learn how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the outlook of area high school seniors and their future educational or career plans.

Finally, we’ll remind you about an important event coming up at the Burroughs Community Center July 9 – and how a regional nonprofit called Save a Suit is aiming to help veterans who may be more food insecure because of the virus health emergency.
