    State Rep. Jeff Yaroch dug into a controversial state policy which places people who have tested positive for COVID-19 into nursing homes and long-term care facilities with healthy residents, saying the people of Michigan deserve to see the science behind this questionable policy.
    Yaroch chairs a House Appropriations subcommittee devoted to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and the Department of Insurance and Financial Services. He found it disappointing that when LARA officials testified, they would not answer what science they looked at, or if they even looked at any science, in determining their position on this plan.
     One of the first revelations from the outbreak of COVID-19 across the country was that senior citizens, especially those in nursing homes, were especially vulnerable to the virus. A March 27 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention following a deadly COVID-19 outbreak a month prior at a nursing home in Washington stated "once COVID-19 is introduced in a long-term care skilled nursing facility, rapid transmission can occur." Yaroch co-sponsored a House Resolution calling on the governor to end the current policy which was formally adopted by the Michigan House.
