All residents and staff who tested negative will continue to be retested every three to seven days. That will continue until there are no new cases of COVID-19 for at least two weeks.

The Pennsylvania National Guard is at the nursing home to help control the outbreak. The guard has taken over COVID-19 testing so the employees who aren’t quarantined can get back to caring for patients.

Officials said the National Guard will stay there until at least Oct. 12.
