WATCH LIVE: Gov. Baker To Address Holyoke Soldiers' Home Report

Gov. Charlie Baker will give a press conference at noon today, where he will address the report released on the findings of an independent investigation ordered into the handling of a coronavirus outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers' Home.

The report concludes that leadership at the home made "serious errors" in their response, and that "long-standing concerns" about those leaders were never addressed. Overnight, ahead of the report's release, the state Secretary of Veterans Affairs was asked to resign.

More than 70 people in the home have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic reached Massachusetts.
