New York does not report deaths of residents that occurred outside of a long-term care facility, such as a hospital. For this reason, we believe long-term care death data in New York is an undercount. Interpret this data with caution.

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.

New York reports long-term care data for Nursing Homes and Adult Care Facilities. Adult Care Facilities is the term NY uses to describe Assisted Living Facilities. New York reports cumulative death data at the facility-level. New York reports death data as COVID-19 confirmed and COVID-19 presumed. According to New York’s site, “In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.’” New York reports deaths as a combination of residents and staff. New York’s data does not reflect deaths that occurred outside of a reported facility and residents who contracted COVID in a long-term care facility but died in a hospital is not included in this data set. The state’s data is cumulative since March 1, 2020. New York provides facility-level of data.
