Mitigating COVID-19 in Long-Term Care Facility Settings

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Announcement 20-038 directs your attention to the following two documents:

The first document, disseminated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provides updated recommendations on long-term care facilities. This includes a general prohibition of visitors implemented on March 13, 2020, as well as strict infection control and other screening recommendations.

The second document is a Department of Health statewide alert regarding Universal Masking of Health Care Workers and Staff in Congregate Care Settings.
