GREENSBORO – State health officials have declared COVID-19 outbreaks over at three Guilford County healthcare facilities, according to a report from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

The outbreaks included Camden Health and Rehabilitation in Greensboro (11 cases among staff and two involving residents), Countryside Village in Stokesdale (six cases each among staff and residents) and Brighton Gardens of Greensboro (one case each among staff and the residents).

According to state guidelines, a COVID-19 outbreak in a community setting is defined as two or more laboratory-confirmed cases. An outbreak is considered to be over if there is no evidence of continued transmission within the previous 28 days.

The state report released on Tuesday also showed altered data for Carolina Pines in Greensboro. A COVID-19 outbreak at this facility includes four cases among staff (one fewer than previously reported) and two cases among residents (one more than previously reported).

The data in state reports is considered preliminary and may change as more information becomes available, according to state health officials. The cases reflected in the reports are not necessarily always active.
