COVID-19

TIPTON – More than 70 residents at Miller’s Merry Manor’s Tipton location were infected with COVID-19, according to data recently released by the state.

Seventy-one residents and 12 employees at the long-term care facility have tested positive as of Monday, according the Indiana Department of Health. Six residents have died due to the virus, according to the same data.

The outbreak at Miller’s Merry Manor in Tipton accounts for more than half of the total 143 cumulative COVID-19 cases and more than half of the total 12 deaths reported in the county as of Monday.

Despite an outbreak at the long-term care facility, the Tipton County Health Department said in a Facebook post the county was also seeing community spread of the virus.

The 7-day positivity rate for COVID-19 tests in the state of Indiana is 7.7%, the state Health Department reported Monday. In Tipton County it’s 13.2%.

“Currently, Tipton County is seeing an outbreak of individuals who are COVID-19 positive,” the Facebook post stated. “While it is true many of these individuals reside in a long-term care facility, not everyone who has tested positive over the last 2-3 weeks lives there.

“The remaining individuals who are positive are members of our community. They may have attended a family gathering, gone to the grocery store, gone on vacation, traveled out of county, etc.”
