ALBANY — New York has changed rules for nursing homes as more people become vaccinated.

According to the state health department, fully vaccinated nursing home workers no longer have to be tested for COVID-19 twice a week.








Workers who have not been vaccinated still have to get tested.

The health department says workers who show symptoms of coronavirus must be tested whether or not they have been vaccinated.

    Do you mean you can still get the C-19 even AFTER you’ve been vaccinated? If so what is the point of taking an experimental vaccine that uses new untested, unapproved mrna technology? If the vaccine was effective, testing would not be needed afterwards… you’re good right, that’s what the CDC said, (or are we NOT trusting Science now?).
