"It’s not totally unexpected with the positivity rate rising in the county and with the Thanksgiving holiday," Executive Director Sherry Ingram Bass said.

A previous outbreak at Adams Farm, which involved 58 cases and three deaths, was declared over in September. 

According to Tuesday's report, outbreaks at Brighton Gardens of Greensboro (four cases) and Brookdale High Point Assisted Living (seven cases) are now over.

In a congregate-living setting, a COVID-19 outbreak is defined as two or more laboratory-confirmed cases. An outbreak is considered over if there is no evidence of continued transmission within the previous 28 days.

Data included in NCDHHS' twice-weekly report — issued late Tuesday and Friday afternoons — is preliminary and subject to change. Cases listed in the reports do not necessarily represent active cases.
