On Saturday, April 4, the Henderson County Department of Public Health received confirmation of 23 positive cases of COVID-19 linked to residents and staff at Cherry Springs Village, an assisted living community in Hendersonville. The additional testing that led to these results was part of a comprehensive public health investigation based on a single confirmed case that was identified on April .

“I want to acknowledge the obvious concerns this will create for residents and their families. It is a very difficult situation for all involved,” said Steve Smith, Henderson County health director.

Since the identification of these additional cases, the staff and leadership of the facility and all of public health partners, including Pardee Hospital, AdventHealth and Henderson County Emergency Services have been communicating and prioritizing strategies and actions to care for those affected and to reduce the risks for others at the facility. All residents and their families have been notified along with staff.
