Is this enough?: 32,000 tests performed to protect nearly 152,000 vulnerable residents
State records show there are 151,724 people living at 4,480 licensed long-term care facilities. According to the Florida Health Care Association, the long-term care facilities support 287,298 jobs. The state’s approach to testing at long-term care facilities, he said, is considered a “representative sample." DeSantis has now ordered long-term care facility employees to visit testing sites for bi-weekly coronavirus tests. With the reopening of some non-essential businesses on Monday, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said he is going to be working with DeSantis to improve efforts at long-term care facilities.
