Long-Term Care Facility Cases and Outbreaks
Long-term care facility COVID-19 cases and deaths PDF
Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, personal care homes, assisted living homes, and intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disability (ICF-IID)
Residential care facility COVID-19 cases and deaths PDF
Residential care facilities include psychiatric or chemical dependency residential treatment centers and long-term acute care facilities.
Long-term care (LTC) facilities like nursing homes are considered high risk locations because their residents are older or in poor health. A single confirmed COVID-19 infection in an LTC facility resident or employee constitutes an outbreak. Residential care facilities also represent group living facilities where COVID-19 can be easily spread.
These outbreak figures are reported directly to MSDH by the facility. Many of the cases and deaths reported by facilities may not yet be included in our totals of lab-reported cases.
