​Stanislaus Health Services Agency sends materials to facilities after the first positive COVID test to highlight specific next steps, which include: 

  • Local testing sites and LHD staff
  • How to request resources through MOAC
  • A 213 and Instructions on how to fill it out
  • Confidentiality agreement for them to sign
    • If contact tracing is reaching out to any of their staff, it is already taken care of ahead of time

Healthcare Facility Watch List Linelist:

  • Facility may fill in the basics and then add to it as they move forward
  • If they can front load all of their staff and residents on that list, it helps process go more smoothly once there are more positive cases.
  • LHD asks facilities to send updates at least weekly. Could be daily or as events occur, if there are new positives or deaths.
