  1. I hope Dr. Box and her staff are doing consistent and frequent inspections of LTC facilities in Anderson and Madison County. I can’t check on my parents living at Crown Pointe Anderson like I want to, since lock down began on 3/13/2020. I have no other way of knowing if staff there is adhering to CDC guidelines. I suspect staff in the community work at multiple LTC facilities. I do know this facility had no thermometer for several days and I had to deliver one to Mom so she could check her and Dad herself. No idea who was checking the people coming in and out each day or the other residents.
