IDH Updates COVID-19 Tool Kit
“Due to widespread community outbreaks of COVID-19, the State Department of Health strongly recommends against residents leaving facilities for excursions, funeral and weddings at this time. Individuals who leave the facility for these types of visits should be placed in quarantine for 14 days when returning. These recommendations do not apply to residents who in the last 90 days have been diagnosed with and recovered from COVID-19 or who live in private residences. Such individuals, however, must meet CDC criteria for discontinuing transmission-based precautions”. See updated COVID-19 Toolkit here.
