The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected people all over the world. In the U.S., those who live and work in nursing homes have been where the virus is most prevalent. Nursing homes in Kentucky are no exception. According to Governor Beshear, more than 360 people have died in nursing homes during the pandemic. While smaller nursing homes may begin to slowly reintroduce visitors, there is demand from the Kentucky AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) for change in the response to the novel coronavirus.
