BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - All the residents of a Brattleboro nursing home have tested negative for the virus that causes COVID-19 after a staff member tested positive.

One resident whose test was inconclusive is going to be retested.

Dane Rank is the administrator of the Thompson House rehabilitation and nursing center. He says all residents and staff will be retested on Monday.

Rank says they were able to identify the source of infection and prevent any spread to residents or staff.

All Thompson House residents are expected to get their second and final dose of the vaccine in about two weeks.
