Ohio is on the ROAD BACK and now is the time to evolve our practices as the COVID-19 pandemic enters the next phase. Below are resources to support nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and adult day services with new requirements for visitation, testing, vaccination, and service delivery.

Nursing Homes

Visitation


COVID-19 Care Center:
A streamlined portal for facility testing and vaccine needs


Vaccines

Testing

As of Jan. 13, 2022, we have been informed by the test manufacturer that there has been an additional three-month extension of the expiration dates of Abbott BinaxNOW rapid antigen tests. These tests may be used effective immediately.  Further extensions of the expiration dates are not expected, so it is critical that tests be utilized ahead of tests with expiration dates much later in 2022.
