State workplace regulators have issued one of the largest fines yet for failing to protect employees from COVID-19 on the job to a Bakersfield nursing home where nearly 200 staff and residents were infected with the coronavirus. 

Kingston Healthcare Center, a 184-bed skilled nursing facility on Real Road in Bakersfield, was fined $92,500 as a result of numerous violations detailed in a 23-page citation report issued by Cal/OSHA last month.
