Health officials said a large amount of patients at Emeritus Senior Living have symptoms of a stomach virus. The facility reports to public health when there’s a large amount of sick patients, so public health can investigate the situation.
“Confining them to their rooms and also having specific nurses deal with just the ill patients. So you’re not having a nurse going from an ill patient’s room to a non-ill patient’s room,” said Zach Manning, Lane County Health Inspector.
The facility is also delivering meals to patients and cancelled all Bingo and community events.
