 A Southern California residential care home company and three of its managers have been charged in connection with 14 Covid-related deaths at one of its facilities three years ago, prosecutors said Monday.

The criminal complaint alleges Silverado Senior Living Management failed to follow appropriate safety procedures when admitting a new resident to its Beverly Place facility in Los Angeles in March 2020.

The resident arrived from New York City, “which was a Covid-19 epicenter at the time,” and was not properly screened upon arrival or placed in isolation after later testing positive for the virus, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement.
