COVID-19 Testing in Nursing Homes

Nursing homes residents are among the most vulnerable populations for COVID-19 and comprise a high percentage of COVID-19 deaths in Ohio. To protect these residents and the staff who take care of them, the presence of COVID-19 in nursing home facilities must be identified so that measures can be put into place to isolate the virus and contain its spread. Ohio's Congregate Care Unified Response Team or CCURT, has developed an approach for testing residents and staff. Learn more about their testing strategy.
