Consulate Health Care of Windsor, a 114-bed nursing home that was the site of a COVID-19 outbreak in April, is currently experiencing another outbreak.

According to U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid data, Consulate had two active cases among residents as of Dec. 13 — the minimum needed for the Virginia Department of Health to declare an outbreak. The facility notified the VDH of the new cases on Dec. 14.

The April outbreak, at its peak, resulted in 63 total cases and eight deaths. As of Dec. 25, the last date the VDH updated its site-specific COVID-19 dashboard for long-term care facilities, there were no new deaths.
