A coronavirus outbreak at a long-term care facility in Herndon has been linked to 11 deaths.
The Associated Press reports that the deaths occurred at the Dulles Health and Rehab Center in Herndon since the first test on March 28. Since then, 63 patients have tested positive for the respiratory illness.
Jeannie Adams, the director of legal services for Commonwealth Care of Roanoke, which provides management services for the center, also noted that 19 members have tested positive.
State officials reported 91 outbreaks at long-term care facilities in the state, resulting in 78 deaths.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has created a task force devoted to handling outbreaks at long-term care facilities. The task force is aimed at ensuring facilities have resources to fight COVID-19, strengthen staffing and infection control measures, and ensure information about the pandemic is readily available.
