COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER OF THE HEALTH OFFICER
Health Officer Order for the Control of COVID-19: Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission in Skilled Nursing Facilities

ORDER OF THE HEALTH OFFICER FOR CONTROL OF COVID-19

Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission in Skilled Nursing Facilities
Revised Order Issued: December 3, 2021 Effective as of 12:01am on Wednesday, December 15, 2021
This Order supersedes the April 21, 2021 Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission in
Licensed Congregate Health Facilities Order, as it relates to Skilled Nursing Facilities.
This Order is in effect until rescinded by the Health Officer.

Due to the introduction of the newly identified Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in Los Angeles County, California and other states and until more information is known about this variant’s transmissibility, its impact on vaccine effectiveness and breakthrough infections, including in individuals who have received booster doses, whether it is associated with more severe disease, and whether it is susceptible to currently available COVID-19 treatments, additional infection control precautions are indicated and necessary for Skilled Nursing Facilities because residents are at heightened risk for poor health outcomes should transmission occur within the facility. Beginning December 15, 2021 through January 31, 2022, all Skilled Nursing Facility residents, employees, and contractors, regardless of vaccination status, who may encounter residents must test for COVID-19 infection on a once weekly basis. In addition, to obtain entry into a Skilled Nursing Facility, all visitors, regardless of vaccinations status, must provide proof of either:

  • A negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to entry, OR
  • A negative Antigen test taken within 24 hours prior to entry.
  • Antigen test kits will be made available to Skilled Nursing Facilities on an as needed basis.

Those who show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 within the last 90 days (i.e., a positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before) are exempt from weekly testing and from showing proof of a negative viral test for entry. Summary: During a State of Emergency, California law empowers the County of Los Angeles Health Officer (Health Officer) to take necessary protective measures to protect the public from a public health hazard. The spread of COVID-19 remains a substantial danger to the health of the public and to patients/residents in licensed skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) in Los Angeles County. Infection control, regular testing of residents and employees, screening testing for all visitors and social (physical) distancing measures are needed to stem or slow the spread of COVID-19 and decrease the risk of transmission to vulnerable patients/residents in high-risk health care settings. Accordingly, the Health Officer hereby requires all licensed skilled nursing facilities (“Facility”), operating within the Los Angeles County Public Health Jurisdiction, to comply with all measures in this Order. The required measures are intended to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in these facilities and to protect vulnerable residents, as well as personnel. This Order is effective immediately and will remain in effect until rescinded, superseded, or amended
in writing by the Health Officer.

Our utmost concern is for the health and well-being of each of our patients and to ensure our staff is healthy and able to continue to care for patients.

We continue to take cautionary measures and follow CDC guidelines. We are also receiving information from state and local officials. In accordance with those recommendations, only staff, essential vendors, and compassionate hospice care visits are permitted.

The measures we are currently taking at this time unless CDC or state and local officials instruct otherwise:

  • Protection with our workforce includes:
    • Screening employees, residents, and compassionate hospice care visitors for symptoms of acute respiratory illness (fever, cough, difficulty breathing)
    • Sick leave policies are non-punitive and flexible
    • Encouraging sick employees to stay home and call in replacement staff
    • Training and ensuring proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
    • Verifying an inventory of PPE
  • Protection with our residents includes:
    • Separating residents who show respiratory symptoms away from others
    • Postponing field trips and activities outside the facility
    • Having activities that allow residents to maintain safe distances from others
    • Allowing for in-room dining to reduce the risk of spreading disease
    • Increasing cleaning in common areas (therapy rehabilitation area, dining area, activity area, lobby area, etc.)
    • Unfortunately, family members are not allowed to do laundry for any patients at this time.
    • Food cannot be brought from home and dropped off at the facility. However, GrubHub, UberEats or other professional food delivery services will be accepted.
  • Protection of all essential visitors, vendors, and deliveries includes:
    • Increasing monitoring or screening of visitors for respiratory symptoms
    • Limiting touching and social greeting
    • Only allowing essential visitors and vendors to enter the building
    • Encouraging family and friends to reach out socially (phone call, video conferencing) to residents to help with feelings of loneliness and isolation during this time.

We appreciate the confidence and trust you have in us to care for family members. We will keep you informed as we navigate this ongoing situation.
