PHOENIX — During the coronavirus pandemic, families have many questions about how to keep their parents and grandparents safe, healthy, and happy in congregate care facilities.

They want to know about prevention, disinfection, testing, and reporting in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and even independent living communities.

This week's ABC15 Town Hall looks at the responsibilities of these facilities, especially with increased COVID-19 regulations and reporting requirements.

A panel of experts can also answer ABC15 viewers' questions about the rights of residents and families.

What information can they obtain about conditions inside these facilities and what to do if they have concerns about a loved one's care?

You can watch the town hall on ABC15's Facebook and YouTube pages on August 6 at noon or in the player below.
