Today, the Department of Health and Senior Services released guidance impacting facilities wanting to allow outdoor visits and visits through an open window for residents who are bedbound or who cannot otherwise leave their room. Additionally, guidance is being provided for facilities wanting to allow communal dining and group activities. The State asks that several items be considered when determining these plans, but each facility will ultimately decide on their own protocols. Facilities should be notifying residents’ families of their procedures for visitations once they are in place.
