Long Term Care Facilities Report

Active Outbreaks in Long Term Care Facilities

The table below reflects cumulative counts of all Vermont COVID-19 cases in long-term care facilities in Vermont during an active outbreak at the facility as of the date above. These counts do not reflect people with an active COVID-19 infection. Facilities are removed from this table if there have been no additional cases during the most recent 14 days. The count includes the following confirmed and probable cases:

  • Initial case(s), regardless of their source of infection, who exposed other cases within the facility.
  • Cases among residents, staff, visitors, or external contractors (i.e. plumbers, electricians, hospice nurses, etc.) with a known source of exposure within the facility.
  • Cases may be counted at more than one facility if they meet the above criteria at more than one facility.

There is a row for every facility with an active outbreak. In order to protect people’s privacy, a facility name or case count may not be shown. We follow these rules:

  • When a facility has less than 25 residents and staff, the name of the facility is shown as Long Term Care Facility A, B, C, (for example).
  • When the case count is less than 6 or when more than 75% of residents and staff and at the facility are infected, the case count is not shown.

This information is updated on Tuesdays.

Variants in Vermont

The Health Department detects variants of concern through genetic sequencing of certain viral specimens. Currently, about 30-45% of all Vermont specimens are sequenced. Most specimens are randomly selected for sequencing by commercial laboratories in partnership with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). A smaller percentage are selected because they are of epidemiologic interest and are sequenced at the Vermont Department of Health Laboratory.  

From 7/22/2021 through mid-December, all sequenced specimens were Delta. In mid-December, we began to see our first instances of Omiron, which became the dominant circulating virus by the year’s end. Vermont’s variant percentages can be found on CDC’s Variant Proportions page. Current data about the virus’s activity in Vermont can be found on the Health Department’s Covid-19 Dashboard.

As variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are expected to continue to emerge, the Department will continue to conduct genomic sequencing for the foreseeable future.
