Rise in Coronavirus Cases Seen in Area Long-Term Care Facilities

Long-term care facilities in the Hoosier state are dealing with a rise in coronavirus cases.

Around 55-percent of deaths from COVID-19 in Indiana are residents of long-term care facilities, like nursing homes.

Positive cases at these facilities were decreasing in May, but an uptick is again being seen.

In Pike County, 75-percent of residents at Amber Manor Care Center have tested positive, and so have 30-percent of employees.

The state will be conducting infection control surveys at facilities across the state by the end of October.
