Life Care Center spokesman Tim Killian said tests have been performed on the remaining residents. Results are still pending on 20 other tests.
Killian said residents who have tested positive will be treated at the Life Care Center, and those who test negative will be moved to a different area of the facility.
Before the outbreak, there were 120 residents at Life Care. Now there are fewer than 60.
Statewide, there are at least 162 confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to a count by the Washington Department of Health.
