The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sending an expert on infection prevention and control to Lambeth House, where several COVID-19 cases have been confirmed.

"I am glad we were able to get the CDC to send an expert in Infection Prevention and Control to the center to assist with their Coronavirus cases," said Congressman Steve SCalise. "The Lambeth House has experienced a heartbreaking number of deaths as well as an alarming increase in COVID-19 cases, and we need to help the families and facility receive the necessary assistance to increase protection of their residents."

Eleven Lambeth House residents have died since the coronavirus pandemic hit New Orleans. Forty-two have tested positive.
