The House Committee on Health and the House Committee on Human Services and Homelessness will hold an informational briefing Thursday to evaluate if nursing facilities and caregiver homes are preventing the spread of COVID-19 effectively, in light of the community’s reopening. The committees will ask what the facilities and homes needs are, how are those needs being met, and if they’re prepared. Speakers will include top leaders from DOH, the Premier Medical Group, and Healthcare Association of Hawaii. The hearing will be televised live on ‘Olelo channel 53 and will be aired via tape delay on the neighbor islands. The hearing can also be watched live online at https://olelo.org/ or on the House webcast page: http://olelo.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=31
