Ensign CEO Port: Nursing Home Visitor Restrictions Likely to Continue for One, Two Months

One day after the federal government released tentative guidance for easing visitation restrictions at the nation’s nursing homes, the CEO of one of the top providers in the space cautioned that it’s still too early to consider widespread reopening.

“We expect that to continue at least for another month or two, even though there are plans that they’re starting to put in place to ease some restrictions,” Ensign Group (Nasdaq: ENSG) CEO Barry Port said during a Tuesday presentation at RBC Capital Markets’ 2020 Global Healthcare Conference, held remotely. “I think we’re a little ways away from that happening.”
