Region F Partners,


The GA Department of Public Health has a new dashboard for information about COVID-19 cases that will be updated at midnight each night. You can access it at this link: https://dph.georgia.gov/georgia-department-public-health-covid-19-daily-status-report


The CDC released a COVID-19 Preparedness Checklist for Nursing Homes and other Long-Term Care Settings - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/healthcare-facilities/prevent-spread-in-long-term-care-facilities.html#checklist


Action item for Hospitals and Nursing Homes - Update bed counts each morning by 8:00 a.m. In addition, hospitals should update the ventilator column on the clinical status page to reflect the number of available ventilators.
