Coronavirus: 32 showing symptoms at Troy nursing home tested

There are 32 people showing symptoms who have been tested for the coronavirus after two patients at a Troy skilled nursing home facility tested positive for COVID-19.

Miami County Public Health and Premier Health held a joint press conference at 3 p.m. to update the public.

Dennis Popes, health director for Miami County, said of the 32 people who were tested: “sixteen are residents, 14 staff and two visitors. Eight of those individuals have been hospitalized.

“As of right now, 11 of those are presumptive positive with the rest still pending,” Popes said.

There was one death of a man in  his 90s, but that death cannot be linked to the coronavirus because tests are pending, Popes said.
