Good news for two Jasper nursing homes. After having a combined total of 10 active Coronavirus cases among their residents earlier in the week, that number has now dropped by nearly half to 6 active cases.

Timber Ridge Health & Rehab Center at 315 West Gibson Street was reporting 8 active cases among residents, but the facility reported Thursday that 4 of those patients have now tested negative and have been moved into the recovered category.

Meanwhile, Rayburn Healthcare & Rehab at 144 Bulldog Avenue reported Thursday that they still have the same 2 active cases.
