Rowan County Health Department Designates Nursing Home Coordinator 

In a continual effort to prepare for future conditions, the Health Department has designated a Nursing Home Coordinator.  A public health nurse will be assigned to continually focus on support and prevention strategy for every nursing home in Rowan County.  

“This is a proactive commitment to our long-term care facilities in which we can directly support their needs and work to prevent outbreaks as much as possible,” said Public Health Director Nina Oliver.  The Nursing Home Coordinator’s time will be dedicated to contacting or visiting the 25 nursing homes in Rowan County on a daily basis.  Should any needs or concerns arise, the public health nurse will be able to immediately coordinate a response in coordination with the Public Health Command Center.
