Ziegler Survey Indicates Low Incidence of COVID-19 Cases in Majority of Continuing Care/Life Plan Communities Nationwide

The May 2020 Ziegler CFO Hotline summarizes the responses of 320 CFOs for non-profit continuing care/life plan communities pertaining to COVID-19 related issues. These 320 responses represent approximately 600 communities across the country. According to Rich Scanlon, this level of response from the CFOs was nearly 30% greater than the number of responses received for other CFO Hotlines– an indication of the level of interest in the topic. 68.5% of respondents reported that 2% or less of their residents had tested positive for the virus. 70.5% reported that positive cases accounted for 2 % or less of the total number of staff. 31 % of respondents reported no cases of COVID-19 for either staff or residents.
