Duncaster Hosts Press Event Showcasing Effectiveness of COVID-19 Measures
Connecticut’s Governor, the Honorable Ned Lamont, visited Caleb Hitchcock Health Center at Duncaster today for a Press event highlighting how much the State of Connecticut has learned about how to control and stop the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.
Governor Lamont noted that nursing homes are much safer today than they were in the spring of 2020. He credited that to a few things, including getting residents and staff vaccinated and giving nursing homes needed support. As a result, Lamont noted that the data showed that nursing homes were in a much better place today. “Even in later waves of COVID-19, nursing home deaths did not increase. This is proof that we have learned. In each wave of COVID-19, Connecticut has done better,” Lamont said.
Ami Desai, Chief Operating Officer and Administrator at Caleb Hitchcock Health Center at Duncaster had this to say, “Today, we are two years stronger, and we have many to thank for that. Most especially our partners at the State who have supported us with PPE, testing resources, information, and consultation. The Governor and the Department of Public Health have been right by our side.” said Desai, “Duncaster is successfully using the valuable knowledge it gained in the first two years of the pandemic. Today, we are even better prepared for whatever the future may bring.”
