WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The number of COVID-19 cases in Wichita Falls nursing homes continues to rise including at one facility that had more than 100 active cases among residents and employees last month.

According to Texas COVID-19 Case Data provided by Texas Health and Human Services, as of October 27, Advanced Rehabilitation and Healthcare of Wichita Falls had 101 active cases: 43 employee cases and 58 resident cases. Advanced Rehab has only seen one COVID-19 related death, according to the data.

University Park Nursing & Rehabilitation has the second-highest in the area with 50 total active cases followed by Texhoma Christian Care Center where there are 32 active cases as of October 27.

Evergreen Health Center in Burkburnett has experienced the most COVID-19 related deaths with four total deaths.

Only Iowa Park Healthcare Center and KPC Promise Skilled Nursing Facility of Wichita Falls have had no COVID activity since March.

On September 24, Gov. Greg Abbott began allowing visitors at Texas long-term care facilities — even those with active COVID-19 cases. In March, all visitation was banned.

In August, state guidelines changed allowing visitors only into nursing homes where there were no active cases among residents and no confirmed cases among staff members in the past two weeks.
