CMS has posted the nursing home COVID-19 data for week ending April 25, 2021

Cases and deaths for both residents and staff continue to stabilize and remain much improved since the vaccination programs in LTCFs and overall communities began.  Keep working on getting folks vaccinated – it’s important.  Don’t forget new residents in your facility as well as staff.  I encourage all healthcare staff but especially those in LTC to get vaccinated!
