Webinar: Regarding COVID-19 from DSHS

Webinar: Regarding COVID-19 from DSHS

Dear Providers, Stakeholders, and Interested Parties,

For the last two months, we have hosted webinars to discuss what Aging and Long Term Support Administration (ALTSA) has done in response to COVID-19. I want to thank those of you who have listened in and participated. For both webinars, we have compiled the questions that were asked and provided our responses, as well as many helpful and informative links within this summary for your convenience. Please find that information here:  

April 16, 2020 Webinar Q&A – FMAP, PPE, training and certification requirements, COVID-19 testing requirements, nurse delegation.

May 15, 2020 Webinar Q&A – visitation policy, “end-of-life” circumstances, COVID-19 testing protocol, adjustments to HCS service delivery. In order to accommodate as many questions as possible during the webinar and to provide timely follow up responses, we will be using the same tool as last time to gather the questions. The link for this process is included in your registration confirmation email. https://forms.gle/mVAQWcSbMGPqB1d67

We are hosting a third webinar on June 22nd at 1:00pm to continue the discussion on our response efforts related to COVID. I will be joined by Director Bea Rector to discuss the status of action items by Home and Community Services, Director Candy Goehring will be providing updates on actions taken by Residential Care Services and Director Deborah O’ Willow will provide information related to the Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  We will again end with any questions you may have.

I look forward to you joining us.
