Four senior care facilities located in Morgan, Greene and Putnam Counties have reported confirmed cases of COVID-19 to the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH).
On April 8, the GDPH released a list of 80 senior care facilities in Georgia that have confirmed cases of the virus. In Morgan County, Madison Health and Rehab (2036 South Main Street) in Madison with one case; in Greene County, Savannah Court of Lake Oconee (1061 Willow Run Road) in Greensboro with seven cases and Jabez – Union Point (1210 Orear Road) in Union Point with one case; and in Putnam County, Eatonton Health & Rehab (125 Sparta Highway) in Eatonton, Ga. with two cases.
In nearby Athens, Pruitt Health Grandview (165 Winston Drive) in Clarke County is reporting eight cases.
The GDPH said in a statement on its website that the list would be updated once a week.
According to the GDPH: “the data in this report is contingent on what information has been provided to, and verified by, the Department of Public Health. It is possible that a facility is reporting different numbers to different entities, but unless it has been verified by the Department of Public Health, it will not be included in this weekly report. This report is subject to change.”
