Reinforcements arrive

Nurses exit a bus as they prepare to enter Brenham Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for their shift in early May. Due to staffing issues caused by COVID-19, a state task force has sent reinforcement nurse’s to help fill the void at the nursing home.

No one at Brenham Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has the novel coronavirus anymore.

According to a Wednesday email from the Brenham/Washington County Joint Information Center, there are now zero active cases of the virus inside the nursing home — which had a high of at least 87 residents with the virus at the beginning of May. About two dozen staff members working inside BNRC also tested positive along with 24 residents who died after testing positive. A total of 88 BNRC staff and residents have since recovered from the virus.
