Assisted Living COVID-19 Testing

11 August 2020

The Ohio Department of Aging has launched a new program for testing staff and residents of assisted living communities. Although it is mandatory that nursing home staff are tested, this program for assisted living is voluntary at this time. Windsor House has chosen to participate as testing is beneficial to allow for quarantine of asymptomatic staff and residents. Currently the program will have 2 rounds. The first round will consist of testing of staff and residents and the second round will be retesting of staff.  Testing in Ohio assisted living communities will begin on Friday, August 14th.
