Indiana’s residential care facilities will provide more information about the health of the people within their walls.

The move is designed to stay in step with State Health Commissioner Kristina Box’s COVID-19 reporting order, along with CDC guidelines and other federal regulations.

The ISDH is requiring long-term care facilities such as nursing, skilled-nursing, residential and assisted-living facilities to provide daily updates and information for residents and their representatives. Those facilities are also encouraged to develop communication strategies with other family members about how the virus and the response is having an impact.
