Also, last week Gov. Tom Wolf said the state would implement universal COVID-19 testing at Pennsylvania nursing homes; where more than two-thirds of deaths have occurred. An investigation by Spotlight PA found not all residents or staff will be tested and testing won’t be mandatory. Some are calling the plan insufficient and confusing. Spotlight PA reporter Aneri Pattani explains what she found on Wednesday’s Smart Talk.
