Nursing homes across the U.S. will receive a total of 7 million N95 respirators from the federal stockpile, a White House spokesperson told Bloomberg Law.

The White House plans to send reports to state governors Monday detailing a plan to get more masks to health-care workers who are again rationing and reusing masks and gowns, a practice that can endanger doctors, nurses, and patients alike.
