Alamance County Health identified an outbreak at assisted living facility Blakey Hall in Elon.

State health officials define an outbreak as two or more COVID-19 cases in a congregate setting.

Alamance officials said the staff member is an Alamance County resident.

“We contacted the Alamance County Health Department to report the results, as well as to seek any additional guidance once we received the results,” said executive director Ed Weeks. “We also communicated with our residents’ families and responsible parties to inform them of our results.”

Weeks said the cases are concentrated in the nursing home’s special care unit for dementia residents.
