Vaccine Mandates for RCFE Workers Start November 30

Following a state and federal requirement for nursing home staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19, the state Department of Public Health has issued a second order covering staff of adult and senior care homes, including Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs).  The order requires all staff, outside care providers, and other workers who come into the facility to be fully vaccinated by November 30.  The Department of Social Services issued a notice to adult and senior care homes, telling them of the new mandate.
