California, Florida release names of nursing homes with coronavirus cases as pressure mounts | The Washington Post
Health officials in California and Florida this weekend published lists of nursing homes in their states that have had coronavirus cases, joining other states that have released at least partial lists.

3 Ways The COVID-19 Pandemic Could Change Disability Policies And Practices | Forbes
How will our world change after the pandemic? Will go completely back to normal and try to forget all of this ever happened, the way so many Americans did after the 1918 Influenza pandemic? Will we just change a few habits, policies, and plans to confront future outbreaks? Or, will we go a bit further and make bigger reforms we once thought impossible, but now seem both feasible and wise? We should probably be wary of attempts to use the COVID-19 pandemic to “win” long standing political arguments.
