Delaware reports long-term care data for Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities. Delaware reports cumulative data since March 11, 2020. (This is the date of the first COVID-19 case in DE, but not necessarily the first long-term care case). Resident and staff cases and deaths are reported separately. Before July 16, data was reported in Delaware press releases. Facility number gathered from press releases only includes facilities in which a death has occurred but not facilities in which a case has occurred. On November 13, 2020, Delaware added facility-level data for outbreaks for staff and resident cases.
June 5, 2020: DHSS announced they were removing psychiatric care facilities from the long-term care facility totals because they were considered acute care facilities. July 10, 2020: Delaware Health and Social Services announced they were unable to provide an update on the total number of cases due to transitioning to a new data system. Due to this, data for July 16 is carried over from July 9. July 23, 2020: This was the first day CTP began recording LTC information from the Delaware dashboard instead of press releases due to a change in DE’s reporting. CTP carried over staff cases and deaths until the most recent data collection. September 3, 2020: Cumulative resident cases dropped from 1223 to 1214. Staff cases were not reported. November 19, 2020: DE added facility-level data for outbreaks for staff and resident cases in the Friday press releases.
