Cases and Deaths by County
Totals of all reported cases since March 11, including those in long-term care (LTC) facilities.
|County||Total Cases||Total Deaths||Total LTC Facility Cases||Total LTC Facility Deaths|
The numbers in this table are provisional. County case numbers and deaths may change as investigation finds new or additional information about residence.
Long-Term Care Facility Cases and Deaths by Race
Long-term care (LTC) facilities like nursing homes are considered high risk locations because their residents are older or in poor health. Even one case of COVID-19 in these facilities among residents or employees is considered an outbreak. We investigate residents, staff and close contacts of infected individuals for possible exposure. (Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities, personal care homes, assisted living facilities, long-term acute care facilities, and psychiatric or chemical dependency residential treatment centers.)
