Senator Daphne Jordan Calls on the Governor to Deploy the National Guard to Fully Staff Nursing Homes

Our nursing homes and long-term care facilities are in a crisis. The Omicron surge and vaccine mandates have left many facilities dangerously understaffed across New York State and here in the 43rd District specifically. I am calling on the Governor to deploy our incredibly brave and highly skilled National Guard to the facilities that are in need. The last governor failed our nursing home residents during COVID, I urge the current Governor to chart her own course and do the right thing for our long-term care patients.
