After disclosing last Friday, June 5, a positive COVID-19 case in the nursing home, the Good Samaritan Society - Hays, 2700 Canal Blvd., reported Thursday afternoon that all residents and employees who were part of a recent mass testing event tested negative for COVID-19.


The statement from the long-term care facility's administrator Noe Gillespie said:


"While these test results are welcome news for all of us at the Good Samaritan Society, we do not see this as a sign to relax our vigorous infection control measures. We will also continue with extra precautions to monitor the health of all residents and staff members. As always, the health, safety and well-being of our residents, staff and the community we serve is our top priority.”
