CMS has posted the most recent county positivity data – December 7, 2020.

Remember that past data is found in the Archives.

Another reminder is that nursing homes are required to conduct testing of residents and staff.  More information about these requirements and guidelines can be found here.  These guidelines include testing staff on a certain frequency based on the COVID-19 positivity rate for the county the nursing home resides in.
