Coronavirus Cases Identified in Six Nursing Homes in Volusia County
VOLUSIA COUNTY, FL- News-journalonline.com writes that six nursing homes in Volusia County have reported cases of coronavirus in their facilities. Three of the impacted facilities are located close to one another in the Ormond Beach area.
The governor, who had been resisting against the pressure to report numbers, has finally relented. Now that the numbers are being released, reports indicate that there are 302 nursing homes in the state that have staff or residents who tested positive for the virus. Homes with confirmed cases of coronavirus are spread through 45 counties. The state is releasing the names of facilities where residents or staff have tested positive, but the numbers of individuals at each home have not been reported.
At the Opis Coquina Center, one individual died after contracting COVID-19, and the facility stated that eight other individuals at the home tested positive.
Recent numbers indicate that five percent of Florida’s cases of the virus were in long-term care facilities. At least 141 people in such homes have tragically succumbed to coronavirus in the state.
In addition to the Opis Coquina Center located in Ormond Beach, several other Volusia County facilities have positive cases of the coronavirus. Those facilities include Avante and Grande Villa, also in Ormond Beach, Majestic Oaks in Orange City, Deltona Health Care, and the DeBary Health and Rehabilitation Center.
