Another essential health care worker at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor has tested positive for COVID-19. The latest case ups the number to two. Ark City Presbyterian Manor is conducting two rounds of surveillance testing for employees each week, after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services mandates that all employees, agency employees, volunteers, hospice, lab and therapy providers at the campus be tested on a frequency determined by Cowley County’s COVID-19 testing positivity rate. According to the local paper, as of Friday, Cowley County’s positive test rate was down to 2.7 percent for a two-week rolling average. Just three weeks ago, that average stood at 10.9 percent due to an outbreak at Winfield Correctional Facility and others at meat plants in Sumner and Harper counties. The manor tested 112 employees, and received one positive and 111 negative test results… meaning more than 99% of those tested proved negative.
