(Click on the image for Jodie Fleischer's News4 report)

At least 46 of Maryland's long-term care facilities have a greater number of staff members who are infected with COVID-19 than residents, according to a News4 I-Team review of data the state released Wednesday evening. Some homes report having only staff members infected.
The revelation comes as state health officials work to enact measures to control the spread of the virus through assisted living and nursing homes, where more than 1,500 staff have tested positive.
"We've had people that were on the non-corona side that have now tested positive that before had tested negative," said one nursing home worker who asked not to be identified. "These people cannot leave their rooms. They're obviously getting it from staff."
