As COVID-19 cases spread across Texas, another startling trend is growing inside facilities housing some of the state’s most vulnerable. Experts say residents in nursing homes and retirement centers are at great risk due to their age, often-compromised immune systems and close-living quarters. While state health officials have refused to publicly release which of those sites have confirmed tested, infected, quarantined or deceased residents and staff, KXAN investigators are tracking and confirming these cases independently in Central Texas.

As the Texas Health & Human Services Commission refuses to disclose the number and locations of positive COVID-19 cases among nursing and living facilities, KXAN investigators have verified viewer tips and confirmed whistleblower accounts throughout Central Texas. Infection numbers for specific facilities represent all cases confirmed by KXAN since the pandemic began, those individuals may have recovered and we will update this map as more information becomes available.

Transparency by State

While state health officials still refuse to release specific numbers and locations of COVID-19 cases in Texas’ nursing homes and assisted living facilities, KXAN is tracking other states that are making that information available to the public. This map is not comprehensive and may not include every state that has disclosed specific nursing homes with COVID-19. KXAN will be updating the map regularly, as new information becomes available.
