Congressman Tom Reed, a Southern Tier Republican, and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise are calling for an independent investigation of how five states, including New York, managed COVID patients and nursing homes as the coronavirus pandemic was growing. Governor Andrew Cuomo, they say, defied guidelines by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when ordering nursing homes to take in patients who had tested positive for COVID-19.
