On July 17, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) issued two Emergency Rules to further prevent the spread of COVID-19 at Florida skilled nursing facilities (i.e., nursing homes) and assisted living facilities.
Both rules require facility staff to be tested for COVID-19 every two weeks with testing resources provided by the state and submit the test results to their employer/facility. The facility must keep copies of all staff testing documentation on site. The rules may be accessed below through AHCA's website.
