NOTE: Correction from State Long Term Care Dashboard:

It was reported in The News Herald yesterday that College Pines has had 2 staff deaths from COVID-19. The piece of information pulled from the State’s Long-Term Care data dashboard is incorrect. There have not been any staff deaths for COVID-19 at College Pines facility. The data is filtered in from the NC Electronic Disease Surveillance System and there was a glitch in the worksheet that pulled the number into that column incorrectly. This has been fixed and will be updated by next week when the State updates their dashboard. We wanted to make sure that data and information is presented correctly to the public.

From Burke County Health Department:

If you are calling just to make an appointment for COVID-19 testing, please call 828-764-9150. If you are getting a test for COVID-19, it is extremely important to give correct names (what name is on your birth certificate, not names you go by) and addresses so positive numbers can be directed and counted in the correct county. This helps to keep the data more accurate for each county.

Please remember that all residents who are tested for COVID-19 are to STAY AT HOME until their test results come back.

Please remember: All residents are required to wear a face covering inside and outside when you cannot physically distance yourself more than 6 feet away from others. Public Health would ask that you follow the Executive Order.

If you have any further questions or need additional information, contact the Burke County Public Information Line at 828-764-9168, Monday – Friday from 8am – 5pm. After hours, weekends and holidays, please leave a message and your call will be answered as soon as staff returns. Or you can also visit the Burke County COVID-19 webpage at www.burkenc.org/COVID-19.
