COVID-19 testing at local nursing homes has started in full this week, that according to Amarillo Public Health Director Casie Stoughton during this morning’s briefing.
She said the city is working with the public health department, the Amarillo Fire Department, and the individual nursing homes to comply with the governor’s orders.
“We’re coordinating with each of those agencies to make sure that we’re complying with the governor’s order to make sure that all nursing home staff and employees are tested. So we should have more information as the week goes on and results maybe next week or the week after,’ said Stoughton.
Firefighters volunteered to help administer the tests.
