We strive to provide transparent, accurate information on all aspects of COVID-19, including our prevention efforts, our response that continues to evolve with the latest clinical and public health guidelines, and the current status of COVID-19 at each community in our system of approximately 4,800 residents and 2,800 associates.
Testing is an important component of our COVID-19 prevention strategy. We are pleased to share some outstanding results for the Asbury system. As of November 1, Asbury has conducted just over 22,000 COVID-19 tests at our communities with a positivity rate of just .5 percent. This compares to a national positivity rate of 7 percent.
On May 21, 2020, we changed our COVID-19 status reporting to a once a day as per the most recent CMS guidance. Charts are posted mid-day, seven days a week and can be accessed by clicking the following links. Chart key: RL = residential, AL = assisted living, PC = personal care, SNF = skilled nursing
