Updated Materials Available – Visiting Nursing Homes During Omicron Surge

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has updated our Nursing Home Resource Center with two new informational products.

As of January 6, 2022, the Nursing Home Visitation FAQs have been updated to provide additional guidance about visitation during the Omicron surge. CMS has also created an infographic to graphically represent how to safely conduct visits to nursing homes during this time of spiking COVID cases around the country. These two new resources are available for nursing home providers, patients, caregivers, and CMS partners to stay informed about CMS’ latest thinking for keeping nursing homes safe in the current COVID climate.
