NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Senior Living Inc. (NYSE: BKD) reported today its consolidated occupancy for December 2020.
As expected, the sequential rate of occupancy decline moderated in the fourth quarter.
While a significant number of states are seeing a resurgence in COVID-19 cases, 89% of Brookdale's communities were open for move-ins on December 31, 2020, reflecting the company's strong infection control protocols and use of testing.
As of today, around 90% of our communities have either successfully completed or are currently scheduled for initial COVID-19 vaccine clinics, with more clinics being scheduled daily.
For the fourth quarter 2020, we expect* to recognize approximately $78 million from government grant programs and approximately $30 million of COVID-related expenses.
We expect to continue to publish monthly occupancy until we return to providing financial guidance, at which point we would expect to return to our historical reporting practices.
* This preliminary financial information is based on management's estimates derived from the information available at this time and is subject to revision upon finalization of the Company's financial reporting procedures. Such information may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
