Wake Robin COVID-19 Updates 

Wake Robin is working very hard, as new information and guidance comes to light on both the state and federal level, to keep our community safe and healthy during this pandemic.  As a result of two staff members testing positive for the virus in early November, we are in the midst of a COVID testing schedule for both our Health Center residents and all staff. Gratefully, these test results have all come back negative. Still we remain vigilant to make sure our community stays safe and healthy.

Listed below are community updates for you to review.  They will give you an understanding of how we are moving through this difficult time together. 

We invite you to read through these updates for a better understanding of what is happening throughout Wake Robin and we invite you to visit this special section often.
