Today the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) released the names of skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) with active COVID-19 facility-wide public health investigations. On May 13, 2020, there are 38 nursing homes with active public health investigations in Wisconsin.
People who live in nursing homes are among our most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19 infections. Long-term care facilities are proactively informing residents, family members, and local & state health departments about positive cases in their facilities. Listing nursing homes provides additional transparency about where infections may be occurring.
