KENTUCKY (WDKY) – A CDC report says an unvaccinated worker likely caused a COVID-19 outbreak at a Kentucky nursing home.

Officials have not named the facility.

We know 46 residents and staff were infected. 18 of those residents were fully vaccinated at the time.

The CDC says most who caught the virus after getting the shot did not have symptoms.

One of the vaccinated residents died, along with two other patients.

The CDC is still working to determine which variant the outbreak came from.
