Coronavirus (COVID-19) poses an unprecedented threat to residents in nursing homes and other adult care facilities in the United States. As of November 24, more than 100,000 residents and workers have died from COVID-19 and 728,750 individuals at 26,515 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.
