Michigan GOP tries to ban coronavirus patients from nursing homes — Democrat Gov. ‘Cuomo’ Whitmer vetoes bill

Blaze: Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bill supported by Republicans that would have banned coronavirus patients from being housed in nursing homes in Michigan.

Whitmer accused Republicans of playing political games with patients’ lives in a statement Friday after she vetoed the bill.

“Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” said Whitmer in the statement.

“Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and addressing the public health and economic crisis faced by our state,” she added.

“We look forward to continuing our work with stakeholders and legislators on the task force to develop real solutions that make sense for Michigan seniors and their families,” she concluded.

The language of the bill said that it “bans nursing homes from admitting or retaining an individual starting Sept. 1 who tests positive for COVID-19 unless the person had recovered or unless a nursing home could provide care in a separate building.” more here
