Adenovirus Outbreak At New Jersey Rehab Center Is Officially Over

December 11, 2018 - 6:25 pm

WANAQUE, N.J. (WCBS 880) — The adenovirus outbreak at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation is official over as of Tuesday.

New Jersey health officials made the announcement exactly 11 weeks after it began.

In total, 36 children at the center were infected by the virus and 11 of them died.

For now, the state is still banning any new admissions to the children's unit, where the virus originated out of an abundance of caution.

Re-admissions are being allowed in the general pediatric unit, but must be approved on a case-by-case.

It has been four weeks since the last patient developed any symptoms of the adenovirus.
