Abstract:

Four in 10 COVID-19 cases and deaths in North Carolina have occurred in long-term care facilities. The virus has contributed to increased health complications and financial stressors for recipients of long-term care services and supports and their caregivers, negatively affecting the quality of care received and contributing to already existing social isolation.
