8 dead, 89 infected after Covid outbreak at Connecticut nursing home

Eight residents of a Connecticut nursing home have died since the start of a coronavirus outbreak that has infected 89 others, officials said.

Twenty-two staffers and 67 residents of Geer Village Senior Community in North Canaan have tested positive for Covid since Sept. 30, according to a statement from the facility. North Canaan is on the Connecticut-Massachusetts border.

“Sadly, we have lost 8 residents with serious underlying health issues,” the statement said.

The outbreak is isolated to the center’s skilled nursing facility, which currently has 70 residents. The assisted living facility was not affected. As of Nov. 15, the home had three active cases.

2. It says:

All but two of the infected staffers and residents were fully vaccinated. “We are obviously concerned we experienced some level of waning immunity,” the nursing home’s most recent statement said.

3. I'm sure all the patients were vaccinated but breakthroughs most injure the elderly.

4. I'm sorry. I meant staff or visitors.

Should have been more specific. Also the article was confusing to read because of all the ads
