In particular, the presenters discuss guidance the United States government has provided to nursing homes and long term care facilities for handling the COVID-19 pandemic, areas of potential exposure to criminal and civil actions for nursing homes and long term care facilities related to their response to the pandemic, and what protective measures such facilities can take to prevent or defend against such civil and criminal actions.
