A Glendale nursing home that reported nearly 70 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and seven deaths earlier this month has seen the outbreak spread to nearly 100 cases and 16 deaths.

Rather than hide the coronavirus outbreaks from the public, as some long-term care facilities have done, Glencroft Center for Modern Aging said in a statement Monday that officials will release data daily. 

“By releasing this data we hope it inspires others to do so and encourage our industry to be as transparent as possible,” said Scott McClintock, Glencroft’s chief strategy officer.
