Those without symptoms are to be tested by the hospital to receive confirmation. No residents had tested positive.

Doerhoff said Sunnyview was provided with equipment to do testing on-site, and results are known on the same day as testing is done. All staff and residents are to be tested. Testing is anticipated to be done by the end of Wednesday, September 2nd.
