Four Residents At CR Nursing Home Have COVID-19
Officials say that four residents of a Cedar Rapids nursing home have tested positive for COVID-19. KCRG reports that the four cases are at Heritage Specialty Care in SW Cedar Rapids.
Conditions on the four residents have not been released, but officials say that they all have been isolated from the rest of the population at the center and will remain separated for at least 14 days. Two staff members at the same facility tested positive earlier in the week.
Officials say that residents at the home are being screened two times each day for a fever and any respiratory illness. Employees are also screened before entering the building each day. No visitors have been allowed into the facility for two weeks.
Staff, residents, and family members are being notified by Heritage administrators of the latest developments. Any family members with questions about a resident being cared for at Heritage can call 319-396-7171.
