Thirteen of the 16 confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the Oregon Veterans’ Home in Lebanon are now recovered. Two of the home’s COVID cases have died, while one case remains active. Facility staff continue to monitor residents for symptoms of respiratory illness to mitigate the spread of the virus. Those who have recovered include the home’s most senior resident, a World War II veteran who celebrated his 104th birthday with a small group of family this week. “This is the good news so many of us have been hoping for throughout this difficult situation,” said Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs Director Kelly Fitzpatrick. “Words cannot express our gratitude to the medical staff at the Home who helped guide these recoveries, and who provided such exceptional care to our honored residents.”
