Another coronavirus cluster reported in Johnson County

Johnson County is reporting a new cluster of coronavirus cases.  Villa St. Francis skilled nursing facility in Olathe has 34 positive cases of COVID-19 as of Monday evening, according to Villa's CEO Rodney Whittington. 

The building is large enough to house the COVID-19 positive patients in a separate area.  Whittington says almost all of the cases are asymptomatic. Of the 34 positive cases, 21 are residents and 13 are staff members. One resident was briefly hospitalized but has since returned to the facility.

Staff members who’ve tested positive were sent home and are not allowed to return to work until they’ve been symptom free for 72 hours or test negative. The Johnson County Health Department has not reported any deaths at the facility.
