The lone patient not connected to the nursing home is self-isolating, according to officials.

Judge-Executive Shane Gabbard says he talked to the CEO of the facility’s corporate owner, Signature Healthcare, and says every resident and staff member at the nursing home has been tested for COVID-19.

Jackson Manor is working closely with the Cumberland Valley District Health Department to stop the spread of the virus in the facility, according to Gabbard.
