CMS has posted the latest nursing home data for week ending July 11, 2021.  If you’ve been on this website before, you’ll notice it has a brand-new look to it.  It appears that CMS has also changed the day of the week that data is updated – it’s now Wednesday instead of Thursday, at least according to this initial posting.

You’ll also notice and appreciate the arrangement and availability of resources on this landing page:

The county positivity rates report section has no data as of this writing but I’m certain that area will be populated shortly and certainly by Monday, July 26, 2021 when that next report is due.  The many graphs we’re accustomed to seeing are still there – scroll down further on the page to find those as well as FAQs, etc. 

The CDC COVID Data Tracker has also undergone a lot of remodeling.  It too looks cleaner and easier to navigate with more features.  Here are those latest stats:
