I did not read past the question of PPR rights but yes their IS an exemption
for nursing HOMES, provided you are basically dealing with people who are
not mobile as opposed to say a retirement community. As I recall to save
"face" the MPAA did some deal were a national association of nursing homes
paid $1.00 per year when it was clear they were losing or lost the case
This is the only exception I no of other than face to face teaching.
Some years ago when I worked at Films Inc one of the studios made us
call a Jewish drop in community center for the elderly as this did not
qualify. That was not much fun
