The City of Lubbock has confirmed that Southern Specialty Rehab & Nursing has been taken off quarantine.

KAMC News reports that even though Southern Specialty is off of heightened surveillance, it still must follow the emergency guidelines that all Lubbock nursing homes must follow.

The facility was put on quarantine after an employee had tested positive for COVID-19. Over half of all confirmed cases in Lubbock so far have been from nursing homes.

Whisperwood, Heritage Oaks Nursing & Rehabilitation and Lakeside Rehabilitation and Southern Specialty were all the nursing homes that were placed under surveillance.
