Officials at the Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing  

GALLATIN (WSMV) - The Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing says 20 patients have died after a COVID-19 outbreak at the Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing facility last month.

However, a spokesperson from the nursing home told News4 that not every death among the residents was due to COVID-19.The spokesperson was unable to give an exact number, though.

Last week, the Sumner Regional Medical Center sent News4 the following statement about its response to the Gallatin Center incident: 

The Gallatin Center for Rehabilitation and Healing has been reopened, and we continue to work in close partnership with the Tennessee Department of Health to coordinate the appropriate care for patients received during the facility's initial evacuation. We are no longer utilizing our emergency response team for this incident.

Officials say more than 70 residents and 30 staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
