LOWELL, MA – Today, Congresswoman Lori Trahan (MA-03) issued the following statement after Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced an investigation into Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley:
“Life Care Centers of America knew how contagious and lethal this virus was when the first outbreak hit their Kirkland, Washington facility back in February. Nevertheless, over two months later, more than 20 residents and health care workers at Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley have died and dozens have tested positive. Worse yet, each of their 12 facilities in Massachusetts has reported more than 30 COVID-19 positive cases and half are presently not in adherence with the Department of Public Health’s latest Clinical Audit."
"At a time when Mitch McConnell is attempting to provide companies like Life Care with blanket immunity for any wrongdoing, I'm grateful to Attorney General Healey for her commitment to holding negligent corporations accountable."
