Core Principles of COVID-19 Infection Prevention

Screening of all who enter the facility for signs and symptoms of COVID-19
1. Temperature check       Yes         No
Questions or observations about signs or symptoms(denial of entry of those with signs or symptoms)
2. Have you been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 14 days?       Yes         No
3. Have you had any signs and/or symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 14 days?
4. Have you traveled to an area with high rates of COVID-19?       Yes         No
  • Hand hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred)
  • Face covering or mask (covering mouth and nose) for Residents and Visitors
  • Social distancing at least six feet between persons
  • Instructional signage throughout the facility and proper visitor education on COVID- 19 signs and symptoms, infection control precautions, other applicable facility practices (e.g., use of face covering or mask, specified entries, exits and routes to designated areas, hand hygiene)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting high frequency touched surfaces in the facility often, and designated visitation areas after each visit

These core principles are consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for nursing homes, and should be adhered to at all times. Additionally, visitation should be person-centered, consider the residents’ physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, and support their quality of life. The risk of transmission can be further reduced through the use of physical barriers (e.g., clear Plexiglas dividers, curtains). Also, nursing homes should enable visits to be conducted with an adequate degree of privacy. Visitors who are unable to adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention should not be permitted to visit or should be asked to leave. By following a person-centered approach and adhering to these core principles, visitation can occur safely based on the below guidance.
