MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WDTV)-- Four residents and three staff members at Sundale Nursing Home tested positive for COVID-19, according to Sundale's Medical Director Carl Shrader.

Shrader says there are two patients admitted to Mon General that are being tested for COVID-19. They do not have those results yet.

They will have an area for residents who are negative for COVID-19 into "safe areas" in the facility.

There will also be a wing in the nursing home where staff will focus on the positive cases as well.

Shrader says the National Guard is set to come to Sundale at noon-ish to screen up to 50 more staff.

Shrader says they are currently doing vitals on the residents every four hours.

A company is coming into the nursing home to detox the rooms.
