"WCCHD is currently investigating a cluster (two or more cases) at a nursing home, with no cases reported among residents at this time," Strahler said in an April 24 email to Community Impact Newspaper.
Strahler said the county health district was unable at this time to release the name of the nursing home or the city in which the nursing home is located.
No coronavirus outbreaks have been reported at any Williamson County nursing home facilities to date.
The Williamson County Health Authority announced an update in its orders April 23 to align with updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state guidelines on nursing home safety during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a news release.
The update includes orders that all individuals entering the facility must wear a surgical face mask or cloth face covering; only visitors providing critical assistance should be permitted into the facility; and the facility may not admit any individual to the facility with a temperature of 99.6 degrees Fahrenheit or above.
The facility must also screen each resident at least once each shift for coronavirus symptoms, including cough, fever and shortness of breath, it said. Additionally, facilities must follow positive case notification guidelines.
