I reviewed the guidance today as it relates to indoor visits. Since we had a confirmed positive employee test result on Sunday, 2/14, the guidance from CMS restricts indoor visits while the facility has an outbreak (the definition of an outbreak is any new positive test result) requiring us to do universal testing for the next 14 days. This week's test results were all negative. If all test results next week are negative (residents and staff results), we will review plans for re-opening to indoor visits. There is not change to guidance on this despite vaccination status. We will continue to keep you updated.
