As of Monday, May 11, at 4 p.m., COVID-19 cases at Resorts at Chester River Manor have climbed to 23, up from 17 cases on Friday.

These numbers could change when Kent County Health Officer William Webb reports to the Kent Commissioners, Tuesday at 10 a.m.

There is now confirmation of 20 resident cases, which include five resident deaths.  Three employees are positive with the virus but there’ve been no deaths among the staff at the facility.

This is an increase of six cases since Friday, May 8, when the Kent Pilot reported  17 cases of the disease at the facility that included two deaths and two infected staff members.

On May 1, the facility reported 11 cases with two resident deaths. Just one staff member was infected at that time. There are five test results pending.

The data was reported to the Maryland Department of Health but as yet is not reported on the state’s website that reports COVID-19 cases in Maryland’s nursing facilities.
