  1. Health advisory guidance issued by DOH on July 8th for nursing homes and adult care facilities regarding visitation and communal activities. Both sets of guidance supersede any previously issued guidance or recommendations. 

 

  1. DOH’s emergency regulations, effective June 1, 2021, to require nursing homes and adult care facilities to have policies and procedures in place to permit personal and compassionate caregiving visitations during a declared State or local public health emergency, including COVID-19.
