As facilities get closer to opening up and accepting new admissions, it’s important to be attentive to the fact that their congregate nature and population served already puts them at a high risk of COVID-19 spreading and affecting residents. Facilities must be careful in their admission process, and consider many different aspects of opening up during the pandemic. Below is a link to our ‘admission process and opening up’ policy, which includes guidance on the the following:

  • General Considerations
  • New Admissions
  • Residents
  • Environment
  • Activities and Events
  • Ongoing Education
  • Staff and/or “Essential Visitors”
