Data from the state Department of Health on Monday – after weeks of holding back data – released a list of coronavirus cases and deaths in the state’s nursing homes and long term care facilities.

In Brick Township, there have been 151 cases of COVID-19 infection and 17 deaths in the township’s eight nursing facilities. Over the weekend, the federal government mandated nursing facilities divulge whether or not there are coronavirus cases within their properties.

The move was applauded by leaders of the union representing healthcare workers. Milly Silva, executive vice president of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, told the Star-Ledger that her members are being encouraged to report whether their observations square with the data.

“In light of continued obfuscation by some nursing home owners and delays in informing family members and workers about positive cases, the Murphy administration has taken strong, decisive action,” Silva told the newspaper.
