COVID+ Response

This document provides suggestions for a skilled nursing facility following the identification of a COVID-19 positive resident, or a presumptive positive resident, in the building. These are suggestions meant to trigger further thought – not all may be appropriate for your organization, and you may think of other appropriate responses not addressed here. The categories below are not in any order and SNFs should triage and delegate responsibilities as appropriate so that multiple tasks may take place at once.
