    Medical staff from the Pennsylvania National Guard were deployed to help a Delaware County nursing facility handle an apparent uptick in coronavirus cases, The Inquirer reports.

    According to the report, the Broomall-based facility says the hell is needed ‘due to current staffing shortages.’

    “That information isn’t being released,” county spokesperson Adrienne Marofsky told The Inquirer. “We’re planning to release more data on long term care facilities next week.”

    “We understand the challenges that many long-term care facilities such as the Broomall Rehabilitation and Nursing Center are facing right now, and together with support from the Chester County Health Department we are doing everything we can to support the staff, patients and their loved ones,” Brian Zidek, chairman of Delaware County Council, said in a statement to The Inquirer. “This call to the National Guard for temporary staffing is one way we are able to provide support.”
