The Biden Administration, Department of Health and Human Services, and CDC released a Winter Playbook for Nursing Homes on January 11, 2023. Here are their recommendations:
- Help residents and staff access updated COVID-19 vaccines.
- Ensure that residents and staff are testing if they are symptomatic, and know how to access COVID-19 treatment options (such as oral antiviral pills) if they test positive.
- Improve indoor air quality across facilities
If your facility is looking for guidance on how to best achieve these quality improvement goals, please email RISEteam@pennstatehealth.psu.edu for more information.
