ALTSA has updated the Dear Provider Letter issued on May 4, 2020 providing information on DSHS newly contracted dedicated COVID-19 positive units.

The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has contracted with multiple nursing facilities to establish dedicated units to care for residents with a confirmed COVID-19+ diagnosis. The intent of establishing these units is to allow COVID-19+ residents from other residential care or acute care settings to move to a setting where they can receive appropriate care in an environment where there will be less risk of COVID-19+ virus transmission to other residents and staff. Multiple nursing facilities across the state now have dedicated COVID-19+ units (COVID-19+ Unit Nursing Facilities), with more anticipated to be added over the next week.

The list of facilities is listed on the ALTSA Information for Providers and LTC Professionals webpage. 

Please see full letter here.
