Brandenburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center resident tested positive for COVID-19

 A resident at Brandenburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center recently tested positive for COVID-19. However, the individual has since tested negative, and there are no active cases of COVID-19 in the building at this time.

 Mary Hopkins, the Assistant Director of Nursing for the facility, says that the resident was asymptomatic. She says he was only tested because he was coming back from the hospital, and the facility requires residents to be tested if they’re out of the building for more than 24 hours.

 “It’s a great thing he was tested when he was because he wasn’t in the building when he was tested,” said Hopkins.

 Hopkins says that they tested every roommate the individual had within the last 14 days. The facility also screens employees before they enter the building using temperature checks and a questionnaire.

 “We’re doing everything in our power to keep the residents safe and keep the virus out of the building,” said Hopkins. “We know that it’s a hard time right now because you can’t see your loved ones, but we’ll get through it together.”
