AUBURN, Maine — After announcing Saturday night that three employees and one resident tested positive for COVID-19, Clover Healthcare in Auburn posted an update on its Facebook page Tuesday saying a total of 17 employees and four residents have now tested positive.

Clover said it has received all results back from its universal testing, however 30 people associated with the facility have not yet been tested "due to scheduling conflicts, or vacation time."

Of all the positive cases, Clover said one employee has shown symptoms.
