NORTON — A Norton County nursing home where every resident has tested positive for the coronavirus in a rural Kansas county with the state’s highest infection rate is losing its federal Medicare funding.

The lack of masks among workers at the Andbe Home was cited this week in a scathing Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services report.

The agency said the facility faces $14,860 in fines and that it will lose Medicare funding effective Nov. 18.

Sixty-one residents of the home and about three dozen staff members have been infected, and at least 10 have died.
