CORONAVIRUS: Sarasota Area Nursing Homes Showing COVID-19 Deaths, Infections


SARASOTA, FL ( — Our readers in Sarasota County have asked for an update on local nursing homes and rehab facilities.

According to the latest report from the Florida Department of Health: Sarasota Point Rehabilitation Center is reporting 10 resident deaths from COVID-19. Brookdale Deer Creek Sarasota is reporting 8 resident deaths. Angels Senior Living Center at Sarasota reports 3 COVID-19 deaths, as does Springs at Lake Pointe Woods in Sarasota.

For infections: keep in mind there may be overlap in the Department of Health numbers — it is unclear if officials are counting an infection leading to death as both an “infection” and a “death.”
