The tightened-up restrictions on visitation for residents at the Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center have been extended after another positive COVID-19 test was detected in last week’s routine testing of staff and residents.
The soonest the facility could resume in-person visitation and group gatherings among residents is now July 26.
Campbell County Health no longer identifies whether new cases detected through routine testing are of staff or residents.
The ongoing restrictions have been in place since May 25.
After opening its doors to in-person visitation March 17 for residents after more than a year of lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, the facility has spent more time with heightened restrictions than without them.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services outbreak protocol calls for the restrictions when one or more positive COVID-19 case is detected in association with a long-term care facility, such as residents, employees, volunteers or contractors who enter the building.
The Legacy needs to go two consecutive weeks without any new cases to bring back in-person visitation and group activities.
