More than 3,000 coronavirus cases reported at assisted living facilities statewide
BATON ROUGE - State officials said Monday that 637 residents at nursing homes and other assisted living facilities across Louisiana have died from the coronavirus.
The state says 3,141 total residents have tested positive for the virus at 230 different facilities statewide.
At least 47 retirement homes were said to have coronavirus "clusters," when the Louisiana Department of Health last gave statistics on clusters in early April. A cluster means two or more cases that appear to be connected.
The state has said it is no longer reporting the names of nursing homes with virus cases.
St. James Place was one of eight homes in the Baton Rouge area confirmed to have a cluster.
The area facilities with clusters were: Chateau D'Ville Rehab and Retirement; Flannery Oaks Guest House; Haven’s Gateway Personal Care Facility Inc.; Lakeview Manor Nursing Home; Legacy Nursing and Rehabilitation; Legacy Nursing and Rehabilitation of Port Allen; Ollie Steele Burden Manor Nursing Home; and St. James Place - Highland Court Nursing Home.
