PruittHealth-Carolina Point located at 5935 Mt Sinai Rd, Durham, NC 27705 is now a hotspot of the COVID-19 virus.

Governor Roy Cooper held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to say a long-term care facility in Orange County has at least 60 positive cases. He said seven are hospitalized and two have died. The Governor did refuse to release the name of the facility during the press conference today. No reason why.

A source who works at the facility confirmed the name with The North Carolina Beat shortly after the Governor’s press conference.

Governor Cooper said health officials have enough testing supplies to respond quickly and aggressively to test and assess patients and staff. 

During the press conference, the Governor said all nursing home staff will be required to wear masks when interacting with patients as well as being screened daily.

Now this is a sad commentary. I would have expected healthcare workers to be considerably more diligent in protecting their patients. Especially those in long term care. Obviously this is a group more susceptible than most. I’d be curious to know if paper masks and sanitizers were required for any visitation.
