Size, location, key factors behind COVID outbreaks in retirement homes

"Outbreaks of COVID-19 infection surged in retirement homes during the first and second waves in Canada and the U.S., and there has been limited examination in the literature beyond early reports of case surveillance," said HEI's Dr. Andrew Costa.

Homes with large numbers of residents and staff suffered a threefold higher risk of being hit by COVID-19 last year, likely because of more staff coming in and out when providing care.
