Long-Term Care COVID Response Plan (formerly the Safe Start for Long-Term Care Plan)

Introduction

Beginning February 23, 2022 the Safe Start for LTC will change to a LTC COVID Response document with recommendations that providers follow CDC, DOH, and, if applicable CMS guidance.  Visitation recommendations will also change to align with this guidance and will open visitation in LTC facilities and homes.  Providers will still need to work with the local health jurisdiction regarding specific visitation restrictions in the event of an outbreak.
