Trahan Statement on the Death of Maria Krier

LOWELL, MA – Today, Congresswoman Lori Trahan (MA-03) released the following statement after the passing of Maria Krier, a nurse at Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley, who was one of the first to speak out about the COVID-19 outbreak at the facility:

“My heart is with Maria Krier’s family and loved ones. She is a hero in our community, and we are all mourning her loss.” 

“Maria showed tremendous courage when she blew the whistle on the outbreak at Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley. Her urgent concern for her fellow nurses and the residents at the facility is a testament to her character and the values that she held.”


“We owe it to Maria and to all those that have passed away from COVID-19 at LCC-NV to demand more from the leadership of Life Care. Transparency is paramount during this pandemic, and the health care workers who show up each day along with the families of those still at the facility deserve to know that Life Care is doing everything they can to stop the spread of this virus and prevent additional losses of life.”
