A nursing and rehabilitation center in Pittsfield, Massachusetts is up to 24 COVID-19-related deaths as of Sunday.

Lisa Gaudet of Berkshire Healthcare said Monday there are 126 active cases among residents and 56 among staff at the Valentine Road facility.

“Our recovery numbers are looking good," she said. "We have people that are getting better each day, and by the end of today should have a significant number of residents that are now heading toward recovery.”

Another cluster of cases in a Berkshire Healthcare-managed facility is at Kimball Farms Nursing Care in Lenox, which had around 50 active cases between residents and staff as of the weekend.
