Several residents at a North Huntingdon care facility tested positive for covid-19 this month, officials announced Wednesday night.

Transitions Healthcare posted on their Facebook page that 60 residents had contracted coronavirus in October. Nine of those residents have since recovered and officials said they “anticipate and hope that 51 of the residents will be resolved of all symptoms as of next week.”

Officials at the facility, located on Barnes Lake Road, were not available for comment early Thursday morning.

According to their Facebook post, the cases were discovered following required weekly testing, a measure that was put in place as coronavirus cases in Westmoreland County began to increase. Tests were previously conducted monthly.
