Wake County Identifies COVID-19 Outbreak at Long-Term Care Facility in Raleigh

Wake County has confirmed an outbreak of COVID-19 at Tower Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Raleigh. Our Public Health team has received test results showing staff members have tested positive for the virus at this facility, which is located at 3609 Bond Street.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services defines an outbreak as two or more people – residents or employees – testing positive for the virus.

The county recommends that, in addition to adhering to the state’s order preventing outside visitation, facilities follow its guidelines, which include:

  • Ensuring staff wear the appropriate personal protective equipment at all times;
  • Restricting employees from working at other locations;
  • Practicing social distancing when possible; and
  • Frequently cleaning surfaces with disinfectant.
