COVID-19 Evaluation and Monitoring



1. Ask residents to report if they feel feverish or have symptoms of respiratory infection. 2. Actively monitor all residents upon admission and at least daily for fever and respiratory symptoms (shortness of breath, new or change in cough, and sore throat). If positive for fever or symptoms, implement recommended IPC practices. 3. The health department should be notified about residents with severe respiratory infection, or a cluster (e.g., >3 residents or healthcare professionals with new-onset respiratory symptoms over 72 hours) of residents or healthcare professionals with symptoms of respiratory infections.
