CMS REVISED Visitation Guidelines: Reference QSO-20-93 (Revised May 8, 2023)

While the PHE has ended, CMS expects facilities to adhere to infection prevention and control recommendations in accordance with accepted national standards.

We acknowledge that there may still be concerns associated with visitation, however, adherence to the CDC core principles and best practices of infection prevention and control must be kept in mind. Indoor and outside courtyard visits are allowed. Residents may receive Indoor visitation at all times and for all residents and facility will not limit the frequency or length of visits, the number of visitors, or require advance scheduling of visits. Outside courtyard visits as allowed. In room visits may be allowed as he/she chooses while adhering to the core principles of infection control.

Families are asked to sanitize hands before and after visits. We strongly encourage family members to take the COVID-19 vaccination to help mitigate the spread of COVID. Unless otherwise indicated for transmission based precautions, residents and visitors are no longer required to wear PPE during visitation.

Social Excursions are allowed with signed acknowledgement.

If residents or their representative would like to have a visit during an outbreak, the visit will occur in the resident’s room, the resident and their visitor should wear well-fitting source control (if tolerated) and physically distance (if possible) during the visit.

For visitors who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 infection, it is safest to defer non-urgent in-person visitation until 10 days after their close contact if they meet criteria described in CDC healthcare guidance (i.e., cannot wear source control).
