“Covid just spread like wildfire in the care homes”

“They shut down the care homes so quickly, all the ones I was working at. They were so cautious and so careful. And then when I went back, because we did some outside sessions in the summer… it was really sad to go, really. Just to see the deterioration in the residents. But they had patients coming in from hospital that weren’t their residents, who had Covid symptoms. But they wouldn’t test them. And it just spread like wildfire. And it’s just terrible, really, the way that they’ve managed, especially the elderly, through this pandemic. It’s just been awful.”
