Wow, 40 in one day is our new high for a daily count. We had 37 in one day back in April when we were supposed to be peaking. Since most of this is from the nursing home it seems to be isolated, but it's still scary. I'm praying for all of the residents and employees of the Windsong.

@GoOilers2019 : the State is making efforts to test all nursing homes so these numbers dont surprise me.

Nursing homes are pretty much a closed environment. If one infected employee came in to work, they would expose everyone they came in contact with. If you are symptom free, you could expose them without even knowing. Many older people have weak immune systems. At least it isn't a New York situation. Como is being accused of sending infected people and people who tested positive into nursing homes to work.

Wonder how many got the regular flu .
It develops into pneumonia in high risk patients.
