Frederick County Congregate Facility Statistics (Active COVID-19 Outbreaks)

These data will be updated weekly on Wednesdays during the 10 a.m. hour by the Maryland Department of Health.

Note: Congregate Living Facility dataset reflects congregate living facilities in Frederick County (i.e., nursing homes, assisted living facilities, state and local facilities such as detention centers, and group homes with 10 or more occupants) that have confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths and an active outbreak. Data are based on facility reports to Maryland Department of Health (MDH), which may be revised if additional information becomes available. Facilities listed report at least one active confirmed case of COVID-19.

Frequent question: I don’t see X facility listed. Does that mean that the health department isn’t following them or they aren’t reporting to you?

The facilities listed in the table above only includes active outbreaks (which is defined as one case in these types of facilities). If the facility you’re looking for isn’t included on that list, that means that there is no current active outbreak in that facility. (Please note that the website is updated once a week on Wednesdays around 10am). Frederick County Health Department nurses are assigned to all long term care facilities in the county, providing them with guidance and support. We are in daily contact with all nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Frederick County.
