- Keep SARS-COV-2 from entering nursing homes where it has not already entered.
- Early identification of residents and staff who have been infected with SARS-COV-2.
- Prevent the spread of SARS-COV-2 between staff, residents and visitors.
- Provide safe and appropriate care to residents with mild and asymptomatic cases of SARS-COV-2.
