BUCKS COUNTY, PA — At least one local nursing home is disputing the state’s data on the number of coronavirus cases and deaths.
Officials at the Lutheran Community at Telford said the facility had no cases or deaths, despite the state’s data from June 10 indicating it has had 48 cases and eight deaths.
Ellen Shrager, the community’s Executive Director, said she has received numerous calls from concerned residents and families regarding the data and is very frustrated.
She addressed the matter in a letter to residents and families, which she also shared with Patch.
“To confirm, as of today, there have been zero cases of COVID-19 reported for residents in any level of living on our campus since the onset of the pandemic. We are very proud of our mitigation efforts and immensely grateful to our dedicated staff for the care and strict adherence to the guidelines we instituted
