A nursing home in Wallingford is increasing safety standards after 24 residents tested positive for COVID-19 in a span of 24 hours last week. Masonicare says those who tested positive are being cared for in isolation units. A statement on the company's website also says the unit is carrying out contact tracing, testing roommates of those infected, and has closed the facility to visitors and vendors.
