Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are particularly vulnerable to the virus because of the number of people living in close proximity. Outbreaks have been reported at numerous other facilities throughout Texas.
Following an order from Governor Greg Abbott, state officials are in the process of testing of every nursing home resident and staff member statewide for the virus.
