COLUMBUS — Reported cases of COVID-19 at Ohio’s long-term care facilities are expected to surge as those facilities continue widespread virus testing for residents.

Mahoning County Public Health officials on May 19 said that’s been underway at some county facilities with the highest number of confirmed cases, which are reported weekly by the Ohio Department of Health.

The following Tuesday (May 26), Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced several teams of Ohio National Guardsmen would be deployed to assist long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes, in responding to COVID-19, starting with about 200 Ohio nursing homes that have confirmed cases.

Dennis O'Hara, director of the Mahoning County Emergency Management Agency, said Tuesday he was unaware of any Guard deployments to county long-term care facilities, which are the hardest-hit in the Valley, according to testing statistics.

Below is a list of COVID-19 cases at long-term care facilities in the Mahoning Valley, taken from ODH data that is current as of Wednesday (May 27). These figures include the current number of cases reported this week at each facility, as well as cumulative totals of all cases reported at each facility since April 15.

Crandall Medical Center in Sebring and Windsor House at Omni Manor in Youngstown have each reported at least 100 cumulative cases between residents and staff, and are reporting the most confirmed cases of any facility in the Valley.

After recording an initial number of cases at a single facility, mass testing is then prioritized for that facility, Ryan Tekac, Mahoning County health commissioner, said May 19. Crandall recently began widespread testing efforts, at least in one wing of the facility, he said.

Mass testing began at Omni last month, Erin Bishop, Youngstown health commissioner, told reporters during an April 30 conference call.

On Thursday (May 28), the agency reported 72 percent of all COVID-19 deaths were residents of long-term care facilities.

Tekac last month said the county received nearly 1,000 testing media from the Ohio Department of Health, which will go to long-term care facilities and other congregate living settings in the county to boost widespread testing efforts.

“I feel the long-term care facilities — they’re doing the best that they can. They reach out to us when they need testing kits. They’ve been working with [the county Emergency Management Agency] for any PPE that’s required,” Tekac said.

Dr. James Kravec, chief clinical officer for Mercy Health and the chief medical officer for the county health board, said long-term care residents who are hospitalized in the Mercy system receive a COVID-19 test before they're set to be discharged. Operators of those facilities may then decide whether to re-admit residents who have tested positive.

The state's report on COVID-19 cases at long-term care facilities is expected to be updated weekly.
