Despite deadly toll, Minnesota nursing home residents with COVID-19 still sharing rooms


Kasi Korum, 41, a recovering cancer patient, said she had to sleep on the floor of the Villa at Bryn Mawr nursing home in Minneapolis because she refused to stay in a room with someone who had just tested positive for COVID-19.

Kasi Korum awoke on the floor of her Minneapolis nursing home with searing pain in her lower back and no one to help her into her wheelchair.

The 41-year-old recovering cancer patient had spent the night sleeping on a thin foam pad in the common area of the Villa at Bryn Mawr after learning the previous evening that her roommate had tested positive for COVID-19, the deadly respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus.
