While 75% of COVID-19-related deaths are nursing home or assisted living residents, fewer of New Hampshire’s long-term care centers have been touched by the virus compared to neighboring states, a state official said Monday.
Health and Human Services Commissioner Lori Shibinette said that COVID-19 positive cases have been found in 21% of all long-term facilities in New Hampshire, she said. That compares to 49% in Massachusetts, 44% in Maine and 33% in Rhode Island.
