DLC Issues Additional Visitation Guidance Today

Maine Division of Licensing & Certification issued clarifying guidance on visitation today, April 15, 2021 to Nursing Facilities, Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IIDs) and Adult Assisted Housing Providers. The attached memo reminds facilities that they should have a visitation process in place that aligns with federal and state guidelines and addresses issues that have been raised recently by providers and families. There is significant confusion around balancing broad and liberal visitation for all residents at any time with the need to manage flow throughout the facility and meet social distancing requirements based on facility footprint. The memo attempts to address this concern.
