Nursing home (NH) residents have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Transmission rates in an NH’s surrounding community have been identified as a key risk factor associated with NH COVID-19 outbreaks.1 It is not known whether some NHs within communities are more successful at mitigating outbreaks among residents than others. We examined NHs in communities with the highest COVID-19 prevalence to identify characteristics associated with resident infection rates.
