I am being told now that we have received 71 results just now.

Our initial staff testing will be done this Wednesday. Could I get a release of information form prior to this date? Please and thank-you
Tricia Cummings
Just a thought, if the reports are finalized, is it possible to have the long term care facility to pick up the reports in person rather than wait for the fax?

I know it is very difficult to answer questions about each specific case, but in general, can we have some guidance about staff requirements to quarantine if they have family visiting this summer from states other than NH, VT and ME, traveling by personal car, but staying at hotels during the trip and then staying with staff members?
Robin Nelson
Pertaining to Covid surveys, are they ongoing and will they be repeated as time goes on?
Kim Pruett-Ilg
I am with Lake Sunapee VNA, and our spiritual care and MSWs have been assisting hospice patients in facilities with virtual family visits. So one option might be to outsource when possible. Most VNA's are likely in the same position where we are glad to assist in any way we can to support our facility partners.
