In brief: Transmission.

Scabies is usually spread by close physical contact.
It can also be spread by using the same bedding or clothing as someone who is infected with scabies.

I hope they are treating these residents for scabies. Once they are treated and the clothing and bedding is cleaned it shouldn't be an issue for any of you.
