100 DAYS OF NY-21 RESULTS, DAY 21: HOLDING CUOMO ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS DISASTROUS COVID-19 NURSING HOME POLICY

Saratoga, NY: Today, Elise for Congress released the 21st Result in the campaign’s 100 Days, 100 Results program highlighting 100 of the critical wins that Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has delivered to the North Country.

“I led the bipartisan call for an independent federal investigation into Cuomo’s fatal nursing home policy during COVID-19,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I have spoken with several families who lost loved ones due to Cuomo’s failed nursing home policy, and I will continue to fight to hold Cuomo accountable for his actions and get answers for grieving New York families.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s decision to force our nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients countered the CDC’s recommendation for a safer, case-by-case approach. Facilities without the capacity for proper infection control should not have been mandated to accept COVID-19 patients, and this disastrous policy led to the tragic death of thousands of our seniors.

Elise for Congress will release a new Result each day through the November 3rd election to highlight the campaign’s laser focus on Real Results for the North Country.
