NYS DOH Testing

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

All DOH led nursing teams, surveyors, and administrative support staff are being tested twice per week and, consistent with nursing home and adult care facility staff, as long as they are asymptomatic and receive negative test results or test results are pending, will continue to work. 

Staff will not be permitted to enter a nursing home for testing and/or surveillance efforts on behalf of New York State Department of Health if they are found positive or presumptive positive for COVID-19. 

For questions, please send an e-mail to debra.sottolano@health.ny.gov.
