Baton Rouge, La. (April 29, 2020) — The Louisiana Department of Health has updated its website to reflect the latest number of COVID-19 positives and will continue to update its website at noon each day.
Nursing homes and other adult residential facilities
COVID-19 cases have been reported by 156 nursing homes and 74 other adult residential facilities in Louisiana. A total of 2,780 COVID-19 cases have been reported among residents of nursing homes, and a total of 361 COVID-19 cases have been reported among residents of other adult residential facilities. A total of 590 COVID-19 deaths have been reported among residents of nursing homes, and 47 COVID-19 deaths have been reported among residents of other adult residential facilities. There are 279 licensed and certified nursing homes and 157 adult residential care providers in Louisiana.
Note: These numbers are reported by individual facilities to the Department of Health. In the last report to the Department, an individual facility inadvertently entered their entire census in the positive cases field. This has been corrected and the numbers reported above are accurate.
The Department will update the number of adult residential facilities with COVID-19 cases, the number of residents who are confirmed to have COVID-19 and the number of deaths among these residents on Mondays and Wednesdays.
