Ten more nursing home residents and one nursing home staff member died with COVID-19 during the first week of July in Connecticut, data released by the state on Friday showed.

There have been 2,755 confirmed and suspected virus-linked deaths in nursing homes and 371 deaths associated with the virus among those at assisted living facilities as of July 7.

The data released Friday indicated that Marlborough Health and Rehabilitation Center reported two resident deaths linked to the coronavirus from July 1 to July 7, and Jewish Senior Services in Bridgeport reported one staff death associated with the virus during that week.

Each of the following facilities reported one resident death associated with the virus: Bethel Health Care Center, East Windsor’s Touchpoints at Chestnut, Manchester’s Crestfield Rehabilitation Center and Fenwood Manor, Southbury’s River Glen Health Care Center, Southington’s The Summit at Plantsville, Stratford’s Chamberlain Health Care (Manor-LTAC), Stratford’s Lord Chamberlain Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Wallingford’s Skyview Rehabilitation and Nursing.

Only one assisted living facility, Atria Greenridge Place in Rocky Hill, reported a resident death associated with the virus. There were no staff deaths reported among the staff of assisted-living facilities during the first week of July.

This data falls in line with the data that continues to be released daily in Connecticut, with the state reporting Friday that there had been no new fatalities tied to the virus for the second time in one week.

The state’s death toll stands at 4,348 with no additional deaths linked to the virus to be announced Friday.

“In the last few days, you saw things were picking up a little bit and everybody was getting anxious,” Gov. Ned Lamont said during an employment-related event at the Bigelow Tea company in Fairfield. “Because our numbers are low, because our infection rate is so low, because our hospitalization numbers are so low, we are bumping along the bottom a little bit.”

A net loss of 13 hospitalization brought those patients down to 77, the lowest census since the third week in March and far below the 1,972 patients recorded on April 22.

On Tuesday, Lamont and the state Department of Public Health reported no fatalities, with a net increase of 14 hospitalizations, bring the total to 83. He said that the 78 additional positive tests, out of 12,594, was well below one percent, and “extraordinary good news.”

He said hospital admissions were among the lowest one-day total.
