No one responded to a phone call and email seeking comment from the facility on Tuesday.

The state report is issued on Tuesdays and Fridays and does not include dates of test results. 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.

There were no additional cases documented in Tuesday's report for previous outbreaks at other Guilford County facilities.
