It appears that the Corona Virus snuck inside the Eagle Valley Children’s Home in Carson City. Three employees tested positive for the virus and won’t be allowed back to work until they’re clear of the virus. Routine testing snagged the virus and it appears the Children’s Home got lucky. No other staff and none of the clients who live there have shown any signs of the disease. The three employees who tested positive are awaiting clearance to come back to work, provided they show no signs of the virus in their blood streams.
The Children’s Home has launched “distance visiting” via remote video so families who might test positive won’t infect any children or staff inside the facility. The Corona Virus can survive in the human blood stream and never show any symptoms. It takes a blood test to find out if they’re in there. It’s a very sneaky bug. Health and Human Services facilities around the state are routinely testing workers to ensure they didn’t accidentally come to work not knowing they were exposed to the virus in the community. Their main indicator is whether their temperature has hit 100.4 rather than the standard range of 97.7 to 99.5 degrees.
