Deaths at Anderson nursing home climb to 24

Twenty-four residents have died at an assisted living facility in Anderson, Indiana State Health Commissioner Kristina Box announced Friday — up from 11 residents just four days ago.

Box, speaking at the state’s daily press conference, said 16 of the Bethany Pointe Health Campus residents who died tested positive for COVID-19. The other eight who died showed the same symptoms.

Box announced April 6 that 11 residents had died and more than 20 people at the facility had tested positive, including three employees.

The facility, 1707 Bethany Road, is owned by Louisville-based Trilogy Health Services.

Box said the state was continuing to expand health care strike teams to test and treat residents at senior living facilities throughout Indiana.
