COVID-19 Employee Testing Update

Stephen Hanse and Jackie Papalardi in Clinical & Quality

It is our understanding that pursuant to an Executive Order that will be issued later today, the State will require only once a week testing for SNF and AL employees for all Regions that have reached Phase II. As of tomorrow, only NYC will be in Phase I. Once it achieves Phase II for reopening, NYC providers will revert to once a week testing. NYSHFA/NYSCAL will continue to provide updates on this issue as it progresses.
