The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has identified long term care facilities (LTCFs) to be one of the most vulnerable places for spread of COVID-19. Given the burden of COVID-19 cases in NY, we have noted many introductions of COVID-19 into LTCFs, widespread transmission within some facilities once introduced, and high mortality rates among residents. It is imperative that LTCFs take steps to prevent introduction, recognize staff and residents with possible COVID-19, and minimize transmission within the facility, while keeping staff safe from further illness.
