COVID-19: Updated Materials for Visiting Nursing Homes During Omicron Surge

CMS updated our Nursing Home Resource Center with 2 new informational products.

As of January 6, we updated the Nursing Home Visitation FAQs (PDF) to give additional guidance about visitation during the Omicron surge. We also created an infographic (PDF) to graphically represent how to safely conduct visits to nursing homes during this time of spiking COVID cases around the country. Nursing home providers, patients, caregivers, and CMS partners can use these 2 new resources to stay informed about CMS’ latest thinking for keeping nursing homes safe in the current COVID climate.
