South Salem care center sees tripling of infected people as new 'hot spot' emerges

A south Salem nursing home has become the latest COVID-19 “hotspot” in Marion County with a tripling in the last week in the number of people testing positive for the disease, according to a state report released Tuesday.

Salem Transitional Care, 3445 Boone Rd. S.E., part of Wilsonville-based Avamere, has 26 residents or employees who tested positive for COVID-19 as of May 3, the state reported. One week earlier, the state reported nine infected people at the nursing home without detailing how many were residents or employees. Three have died.

No other nursing home or long-term care facility in Oregon reported such an increase over the prior week.

A person answering phones at Salem Transitional Care referred questions to a corporate email. No one answered at corporate headquarters Tuesday evening. Shawn Raloff, director of marketing and communications for Avamere, said in an email that he was unsure if he could provide information Tuesday evening.
