"We've run tests for over a dozen different viruses and bacteria, from run-of-the-mill influenza to
bird flu and SARS," said Dr. Donald Low, the lab's medical director. "So far, everything’s come up negative."
Residents at the nursing home began to show symptoms one week ago. The first patient died on
Sept. 29. A coroner will begin performing autopsies on Monday.
Low said once they have tissue samples from the deceased patients, lab technologists will be able to
run more sophisticated tests.
