AL-SNF Dear Administrator Letter – Personal Protective Equipment Ordering and COVID-19 Testing

Personal Protective Equipment Ordering: Revised Process COVID-19 Testing 

ALTSA: ALF #2020-013

ALTSA: NH #2020-015

The manner of requesting and receiving personal protective equipment (PPE) has changed. DSHS received direction on 04/09/20 that revises how PPE will be requested and distributed to long-term care facilities and Supported Living Agencies. The state mission in this regard is to:

  • Get appropriate PPE to every long-term care facility with a COVID-19 case.
  • Get surgical masks to every long-term care facility without a COVID-19 case so universal surgical masking can occur to prevent pre- and asymptomatic infection from staff to residents or clients.
