ELIZABETHTOWN, Vt. (WCAX) - A North Country nursing home is grappling with a cluster of COVID cases, again.

The Essex Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Elizabethtown is now reporting 11 residents are sick, three of whom are hospitalized. Three staff members also have COVID-19.

This comes just two months after the center celebrated the return of in-person visitation.

The state health department is working with the facility to prevent further spread. Around this time last year, the Essex Center experienced a large outbreak, with at least fifteen deaths.
