ISDH’s Communication Guidelines for long term-care facilities requires facilities to complete a Weekly Transfer Form detailing the transfer of COVID-19 residents to other long-term care facilities (not hospitals) and email it the local ombudsman every Friday.  On May 12, 2020, the ISDH issued a new Weekly Transfer Form, which requests the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths at the facility.  IHCA/INCAL is seeking guidance on whether the total number or new weekly number of COVID-19 cases and deaths is being requested, as well as how this information will be utilized.
