CMS Releases Weekly Update of Nursing Home COVID-19 Data

As previously reported, all nursing homes are now required to report COVID-19 cases and deaths to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published the reported COVID-19 data for the week ending June 7, 2020. This information can be searched by a number of different data points and tools, including a map tool that allows the user to zoom in and click on a dot representing a nursing facility to see specific data for that facility. The site also shows total facility residents confirmed cases and deaths by state.
