After two residents at Sydney Creek in San Luis Obispo were reported to be positive for COVID-19 earlier this month, the executive director of the senior living facility says all residents and staff have now tested negative for the virus.

Kirk Klotthor says a total of 128 residents and staff members were tested for the coronavirus on July 13 and all results came back negative.

Klotthor also says the two residents who were sick have been cleared by the county health department and are "healthy and doing well."

Sydney Creek is also reportedly working on creating an outdoor "visitation station" to allow residents and their families to interact safely.
