Nursing houses battle with outbreaks regardless of vaccines | Information from Illinois

FILE – Nursing home residents wait in line in the Harlem neighborhood of New York on Friday, January 15, 2021 to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at the Harlem Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, a nursing home facility. A focus on the elderly at the start of the country’s vaccination campaign helped protect nursing homes that were devastated at the height of the U.S. coronavirus outbreak, but they are far from clear. Long-term care centers across the country are still experiencing new outbreaks, often attributed to infected workers, which continue to devastate visiting policies.
