I guess it could increase turnover in resthomes, which could be good for rest home shareholders, but that isn't a good thing.
I think it will have the opposite effect for shareholders.
A buddy of mine, an electrician, has just worked the weekend earning time-and-a-half at a local Aged-Care/Supportive living facility - home to about 450 residents – one in a chain of about a dozen.
His company's installing cameras and remote/keypad controls at the main, public sliding glass entry doors, and building an 'airlock style' secondary main entrance.
I popped over for a look. They're going all out at this facility, and – I'd assume - at the others to tightly control access.
The new entrance looks to have an airwall or pressurisation. Couldn't get in there to see.
Management specifically told them it was nothing to to with the new virus, just normal seasonal flu precautions.
Kneejerk reaction? Maybe.. this is costing money.
If it was my aged relative living there I'd be glad to see they're making an effort.
If they weren't being proactive and a bunch of paying guests got sick or died – I expect they'd be sued.
