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

The outbreaks involved 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 in Greensboro (one case each among staff and residents).

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

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

The data in the 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 active yet.
