the real issue with nursing homes

A nursing home has 10 residents in it's COVID ward. One of them gets sick enough that they require hospitalization so they are admitted to a hospital as a patient.

After some period of time the hospital determines that the patient no longer requires hospital care so they discharge the patient.

However, the patient still tests positive for the coronavirus. In this case the nursing home accepts their resident back into the COVID ward rather than into the general population. At that point they are cared for just like the COVID residents who never went to the hospital.

That as I understand it is what the CDC guidelines say. And I don't see a risk to the general population in the nursing home in this scenario.

It's the people who work there. Do you isolate all of them too? That's cooks, clean-up crews, administration, the medical teams including RNs and CNAs, the people who deliver food and medical supplies. All you need is for one of them to end up in a public place where some guy who's positive and doesn't know it and is not wearing a mask, and they then spread it to everyone else in the facility, except maybe the medical people if they have adequate PPE (including N95 masks, assuming they wear all that every single minute of a working shift).

So you work in a nursing home and your spouse works someplace indoors that is regularly visited by people without masks....
