When reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.

Arkansas reports long-term care data for Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities.

On the Arkansas COVID-19 dashboard, the state provides facility-level data for current outbreaks for staff cases, resident cases, staff deaths, resident deaths. Deaths are reported weekly on Fridays. Outbreak reporting includes facilities that have had active cases in the last 28 days. Once a facility no longer has active cases for 28 days they are taken off the report. Cases for residents and staff are reported separately.

Cumulative totals for staff cases, resident cases, staff deaths, resident deaths and total facilities with a case are provided to CTP by the Arkansas Department of Health via email. This cumulative data is usually available at the bottom of the spreadsheet on the state dashboard's Friday long-term care reports, except for total facilities with a case.

From July 1, 2020 - August 31st, Arkansas provided cumulative and outbreak data directly to CTP via an emailed spreadsheet. On August 31st, Arkansas began publishing a facility-level spreadsheet for facilities with current outbreaks, including staff cases, resident cases, staff deaths and resident deaths.

Staff cases and facility numbers are carried over from June 4 to June 8, June 11 to June 15, and June 18 to June 22.
