Two employees of Cedar Rapids care facility test positive for COVID-19

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) -- Two employees at Heritage Specialty Care in Cedar Rapids have tested positive for COVID-19.

A spokesperson for the facility says they were informed of the positive tests on Tuesday right after the employees learned of their test results that morning.

It's unclear where or how the employees were exposed to the virus. Family members and employees were notified of the situation on Tuesday.

It's unclear when the employees last worked at the facility. Officials have been in communication with the Iowa Department of Public Health and Linn County Public Health to make sure all procedures are being followed. Visitors have not been allowed in the facility since March 11th and all communal dining and activities were suspended last week.
