Lumped or other facilities‘Lumped or other facilities’ shows data from states that have not broken down their data by facility type, so it might include data from nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. It also includes some congregate living facilities for older adults that are neither nursing homes nor assisted-living facilities.

State notes

Puerto Rico reports long-term care COVID-19 data for Long Term Care facilities. Puerto Rico reports cumulative but not outbreak data. COVID Tracking Project puts Long Term Care facilities in the Lumped or Other facilities category. Puerto Rico does not provide facility-level data. Puerto Rico reports resident and staff cases as combined, and resident deaths separately. Puerto Rico does not report staff deaths. Data is cumulative since August 15, 2020.   Puerto Rico provides cumulative totals for resident and staff cases combined and resident deaths and number of facilities with a case.    The number of staff and resident cases in this dataset represent PCR tests reported by the Puerto Rico Department of Health from August 13th and August 20th-September 12th, 2020. In the August report, Puerto Rico also reported antibody tests from April - September. Of those antibody tests, which CTP does not currently include in our dataset, there were 349 resident positive antibody tests and 163 staff antibody tests. Puerto Rico does not report resident or staff deaths and does not list facilities by name or by type. Puerto Rico does not provide facility-level data. Puerto Rico did not report any new cases or deaths between January 7 and March 4, 2021, when CTP stopped collecting long-term-care data.   

  • September 17, 2020: CTP first reported Puerto Rico’s long-term care data.
  • October 29, 2020: Puerto Rico has not reported new long-term data since October 18, 2020. Data is carried over to the most recent collection date.
  • January 7, 2021: Puerto Rico reported resident and staff cases for the first time since November 1, 2020 in a comprehensive report at the end of the 2020 calendar year. Previous case data separated out staff and resident cases based solely on PCR test results, but this new data combines staff and resident cases from various testing methods. Puerto Rico also released cumulative resident deaths which we were able to draw from and backfill that information. This change is reflected in our dataset.
  • January 14, 2021: Puerto Rico has resumed weekly reporting which does not include an update on total staff and resident cases, nor updates on resident deaths. Moving forward we will carry the case and death totals from January 7, 2021 and update the cumulative number of facilities affected as per the weekly report.
