Congressman Kim Convenes Call with Senior Care Leaders
on Impact from Coronavirus Crisis

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, on a call convened by Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03), senior community leaders from across Burlington and Ocean Counties outlined ongoing issues faced during the Coronavirus Crisis and discussed potential solutions to help New Jersey’s seniors.

“The message I heard today was loud and clear; this crisis has hit our seniors hard,” said Congressman Kim. “I’m going to keep working to make sure that our seniors have access to the care and resources they need to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic, and to make sure our senior communities have the support to return operations back to normal.”

Congressman Kim was joined by leaders from the Ocean and Burlington County Office of Senior Services, as well as representatives from nearly a dozen senior communities across the two counties.

Specific issues discussed on the call included concerns about vaccine costs and distribution, testing and contact tracing efforts in New Jersey, and liability insurance coverage for senior communities. Senior leaders were encouraged to keep in touch with Congressman Kim’s office whose staff handles many constituent issues and stands ready to assist senior residents.
