Coronavirus (COVID-19) poses an unprecedented threat to residents in nursing homes and other adult care facilities in the United States. As of September 21 approximately 80,000 residents and workers have died from COVID-19 and 497,000 individuals at 20,000 facilities have been infected, according to Kaiser Family Foundation data. As numerous reports and studies have highlighted, this population is particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 due to age, pre-existing medical conditions, and frequent exposure to facility staff, other residents, and visitors to the facility.
