Entire senior home in New Jersey, 94 people, presumed to have coronavirus / St. Joseph’s Senior Nursing Home in Woodbridge already has 24 people who tested tested positive, with 70 more expected to also test positive.

An entire New Jersey nursing home is presumed to be infected with coronavirus, forcing everyone from the facility to be evacuated on Wednesday, officials said.

At least 24 of 94 residents and patients of St. Joseph’s Senior Home in Woodbridge, about 20 miles south of Newark, have tested positive for coronavirus and the other 70 clients are also believed to have the virus, authorities said.

The first positive came back on March 17 and at least one positive test has come back "everyday thereafter," said John Hagerty, a spokesman for the city of Woodbridge.

While not every patient has been tested, and not all results have returned yet, officials said they had no choice but to assume the worst.

2. Are these senior facilities to be the filled with the sacrificed seniors?

The GOP is truly demonstrating their values every day.

3. It's heartbreaking.

The GOP is truly demonstrating their values every day.
Thankfully my sister's memory care facility is getting their guidance from the Virginia health department and have taken their responsibility and obligations very seriously. I've heard that some of the residents and families of residents at my sister's facility are complaining that they're "too strict". But they're holding firm with their lockdown.

I think that stories like this one will help to reinforce and solidify and justify their decision. I hope anyway.

I feel so bad for the families involved. I can't imagine what we'd do if we found ourselves in that situation.

6. Looks like Trump & Republicans will get their wish about elderly being sacrificed for wealth...

Most elected Repugs are 70+, maybe they could take their own advise...hmmmm?
