It also includes some congregate living facilities for older adults that are neither nursing homes nor assisted-living facilities.

North Carolina reports long-term COVID-19 data for Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities, which includes Adult Care Homes, Family Care Homes, Multi-unit Assisted Housing, Group Homes, and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID). COVID Tracking Project puts Nursing Home data into the Nursing Home facilities category and Residential Care Facilities into the Lumped or other facilities category. North Carolina reports cumulative and outbreak data. NC does provide facility-level data. North Carolina provides cumulative totals for resident and staff cases combined and resident and staff deaths combined. North Carolina provides outbreak data for resident and staff cases separately and resident and staff deaths separately and number of facilities with a case. North Carolina defines an outbreak as a facility with two or more cases. An outbreak ends when 28 days have passed with no new confirmed case. Once an outbreak ends, another outbreak can occur at the same facility. North Carolina does not report data for facilities with fewer than 10 residents. North Carolina began reporting cumulative data on June 25, 2020. Interpret North Carolina’s historic data with caution.

The state does not provide facility-level cumulative data. The state provides facility-level outbreak data. Outbreak facility-level data was first reported by the state on 2020-06-04.
Because each state reports facility-level data differently, CTP has produced a number of scripts to make the dataset as standardized and comprehensive as possible. This state uses the following scripts: post_processing, standardize_data, close_outbreaks. More information on each of these scripts can be found in our Airtable Facility Script Annotations.
