Negative Test Results Returned for HAMC Care Center
Rugby, ND –
Heart of America Medical Center’s Care Center completed repeat sentinel testing of the employees of the care center. All 75 employees tested on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 were negative for COVID-19.
The next round of sentinel testing for the Care Center will take place on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. However due to CMS and CDC guidelines and the increased numbers of positive tests throughout the county, testing may occur sooner. Pierce County is considered to be at the ‘moderate’ level and new guidelines have been implemented as of September 2, 2020. HAMC Care Center is awaiting that decision at the time of this release.
