CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan reports on the impact of the Coronavirus at CP Nassau in Bayville, a facility under quarantine where 37 of the 46 residents tested positive for COVID-19. For these residents, social distancing and hand washing are nearly impossible. Their caregivers are their last defense. Leaders hope the disabled, often forgotten, and their caregivers now become part of the public health discussion.
“This is not a normal family life setting,” said Bob McGuire, executive director of the residence. “Although I have to tell you that our staff acts as if it is their family.”
