FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Ten residents at Linwood Meadows nursing home in Visalia have tested positive for COVID-19 as Tulare County Public Health grapples with another outbreak at a nursing home in their county.

The public health department made the announcement on Monday, and added that they'll be working with the facility and the state to ensure the facility is following proper guidelines regarding PPE and care.

The outbreak at Linwood comes as Tulare County is already dealing with two other outbreaks at nursing facilities in their jurisdiction.

All three facilities are in Tulare County.
