Live Ins: best type of care available for fighting COVID-19 and other diseases

Self isolation is built into the live-in model, since the disabled live with the caregiver.  There is no other care giving model that comes close to the live-in care giving model for fighting the spread of disease! EVV hinders live-in's ability to do their jobs.  Exempt live ins now.
