- COVID-19 Nursing Home Data has been updated again. Currently on display is data for week ending August 2, 2020.
- Iowa Guidance on Phased Easing of Restrictions for Long-Term Care Facilities was most recently updated on August 10, 2020. Prior to that, the guidance carried an update of June 30, 2020. The June 30th version contained a category identified as Non-Medically Necessary Trips for each of the 3 phases. That category has been renamed as Medical Trips Outside the Facility. Appendix D FAQs remain the same as those in the June 30th version of the guidance.
- CDC’s Assessing Risk Factors for Severe COVID-19 Illness shows as being updated August 10, 2020. I’m not certain what’s been updated. This is a great resource to bookmark and check periodically, especially for assessment purposes.
