Reminder to Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities 











Reviews of issues related to long term care facilities with high numbers of positive COVID-19 cases (in states other than Michigan), show that two issues may have driven the spread of infection.

  1. Failure to appropriately address employees and residents who may have had exposure or started to demonstrate symptoms of the disease
  2. Failure to immediately separate, cohort and limit movement of persons suspected of disease along with confining care of such persons to staff dedicated to their care only.
