New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo admitted in May that he would not place his elderly mother in a nursing home, two months after his controversial order barring long-term care facilities from turning away COVID-19-positive patients.
“If I were advising a friend, I would say you have a vulnerable person. Best to keep them at home and not put them in a congregate facility. Keep them in a situation where you have the most control,” Cuomo told MSNBC in May.
“That is the blunt truth. That’s what I would do with my mother,” he added.
