DuBois, PA – A contracted employee who provided services to the DuBois Nursing Home was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Sunday.
This person was not symptomatic and was tested as part of their provider’s protocol.
Families within the unit where the contracted employee provided services have been notified.
This person had been properly wearing PPE for the 14 days before testing positive, and the DuBois Continuum of Care says no resident so far within the DuBois Nursing Home has tested positive.
The DuBois Nursing Home, and other personal care facilities in our area, continue to work hard to keep the virus out of their walls and are not accepting any visitors at this time for the safety of their residents.
Again, this person who tested positive did not show any symptoms. It goes to show that we all need to be careful even if we don’t necessarily feel sick, so we can continue protecting our most vulnerable citizens.
