Wake County Public Health has confirmed outbreaks of COVID-19 at the following facilities:

  • Wake Assisted Living Memory Care at 2800 Kidd Road in Raleigh. This is the facility’s third outbreak. The previous outbreaks occurred in July 2020 and August 2021.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services defines an outbreak as two or more people – residents or employees – testing positive for the virus. Because of the possibility for rapid spread of COVID-19 in long-term settings, NCDHHS shares guidance on the steps these facilities should take following an outbreak.
