Gallatin nursing home has confirmed positive COVID-19 cases


GALLATIN, Tenn. (WKRN) — Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation & Healing has issued a statement on Facebook regarding confirmed cases of COVID-19 in people at the facility.

It is unclear at this time if the confirmed cases are in patients, residents, or both and it is unclear how many people are affected at this time.

“My dad is 83 and I don’t want nothing to happen to my dad,” said Ralph Wagner, whose father lives in the facility. “I was just down here the other day and now I hear they might have a case or whatever.”

Administrators with the facility say all team members have been wearing CDC-approved protective equipment and those who tested positive with COVID-19 have been isolated “to ensure low-to-no risk exposure.”

“We cannot stress the valuable importance of the practice of infection control,” the center said in a statement, “as this ensures the well-being of our patients, as well as one another.”

The center is asking families to reach out to the community to virtually visit their loved ones. You can call (615) 452-2322 with any questions.
