New COVID-19 Program Available to Honor Staff

Today, AHCA/NCAL unveiled its COVID-19 Honors program for all ?long term care staff. This program was created for facilities to recognize their incredible staff in long term care who demonstrated strength and courage in the face of COVID-19. Any facility wishing to honor their staff can participate in this program. 
There are three categories, which include:  
  1. Individuals who work in a long term care facility where there was a COVID outbreak 
  2. COVID survivors 
  3. Staff members who passed away from COVID
When a facility purchases materials, they will also receive a communications packet, including:
Ceremony guide
  • Media advisory template announcing the ceremony
  • Press release template (post-ceremony)
  • Template letters to staff and family of staff who passed away
Honors materials are distributed on a rolling basis, so there is no deadline to purchase. Facilities can order and purchase merchandise via the AHCA/NCAL bookstore beginning today. Please allow a minimum of three to four weeks to receive your order. AHCA/NCAL is actively working with suppliers to get these special items to you as quickly as possible while keeping them at cost.
