Reporting of all POC testing is mandated. If you continue to test persons who are positive, how do your distinguish them from new positives, in order to achieve 14 days of negative results and move to outbreak resolutions?

All our residents have had Covid except 1 resident and half my staff. We are just reopening today for new admits that are non Covid. We test our staff 2 times weekly who have been negative, and our 1 resident. When do we ever retest the positive Covid staff and residents. Is it 90 days from onset of s/s?
Di Findley
01:07:15
So just to clarify... is CMS still mandating routine testing for nursing home staff. Iowa's State Hygienic Lab reported they do not have the capacity to handle the volume. So what is the status of the federal distribution of COVID (POC) tests to nursing homes. Thank you.
Billie Hendry
01:15:38
As flu season approaches and facilities may be encouraged to test for both COVID and Influenza, can the POC testing platforms that were sent by CMS be made capable of performing testing for influenza if the facility has the appropriate testing reagent and controls?
Gina Anderson
01:19:17
You can chat in your questionsorYou may verbally ask a question. To unmute yourself use the phone icon on the Zoom platform and/or on your phone or you can press *6 on your phone keypad.
Belinda Sosi
01:21:05
after you have been tested twice per the state and both are negative, positivity rate in the county is yellow, do you test once weekly or do you test twice a week for 2 wks, then once a week? Not sure how this goes
Susan Grayson
01:21:20
Could you advice us on what to do when the CMS determined positivity rate is different from the State determined positivity rate and why this may happen? Thanks for the helpful presentation.
LeRoy Baker
01:21:51
Will the card testing be available for POC testing. since the machines that were sent by CMS really are not made to do mass testing daily at the door when staff is coming on. I believe the only way to combat this virus is daily test of staff to prevent it from coming in on asymptomatic people.
Leslie Eber
01:21:53
Can Dr. Stone talk about re-infection as there have been more reports about this occurring, Has she reviewed any further data that suggests that re infection is more common, also can she comment about documenting and finding occurrences of re infection when the first infection may be asymptomatic.
Gina Anderson
01:28:26
If your question was unanswered please send us an email to nursinghome@telligen.com

Di Findley
01:32:25
Was Iowa among the states targeted to receive the POC tests? And who is paying for all of the tests?
Susan Grayson
01:33:30
I notice that CMS is updating their positivity rate at different times and sometimes every week, although the guidance directs us to check only the first and third Mondays. Is it best to continue to check only every other week? Thank you,
Di Findley
01:34:43
and one more... what are the causes for lack of access to testing? Is it $? Supply chain? Thank you
Britton Nevitt
