September 12, 2020 will be EXACTLY SIX months since loved ones in our nursing facilities in New York State have received our essential supplemental care. Whether you are an essential care visitor, an essential family caregiver or a caregiver - this is way too long for our loved ones to be isolated in their rooms. It is unconscionable what families and our loved ones are enduring. Our loved ones are experiencing accelerated health decline from isolation, depression, and failure to thrive. Unacceptable. This Rally will illuminate the Senate Essential Visitor Bill that is on the Floor, a request for an Executive Order IMMEDIATELY by our Governor for safe visitation. Governor Cuomo needs to address that Facilities are NOT following Section 1 of the July 15, 2020 visitation mandate New York Department of Health Visitation Mandate which reads"visitation is suspended....except when visitors are essential to the care of the residents...".
Facilities statewide are not following this directive - and the NY Department of Health is not enforcing this. Governor Cuomo - we need your to help us save our vulnerable loved ones lives. #ourlovedonesaredyingtoseeus

TO ALL MEDIA
The mission of ESSENTIAL CARE VISITOR Rally on 9/12 is to request that
NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo and Dr. Howard Zucker ENFORCE the visitation mandates that they themselves wrote, in their own language in Section 1 of the REVISED Mandate for Essential Care Visitors on July 10, 2020: "Effective immediately, suspend all visitation except when medically necessary (i.e. visitor is essential to the care of the patient..."
