New AARP Analysis Shows Rate of COVID-19 Deaths in Nursing Homes Has Tripled and Cases Quadrupled in Three Months
The latest release of AARP’s Nursing Home COVID-19 Dashboard depicts a worsening crisis from coast to coast, including Minnesota. In the four-week period ending December 20, 62.2% of nursing homes in Minnesota reported residents with confirmed cases of coronavirus, and 92.4% with at least one staff member diagnosed.
AARP Minnesota is pushing state lawmakers to address nursing home residents’ need for socialization, among other long-term care reforms, when they return next month for the 2021 legislative session.
