Long-Term Care COVID-19 Testing Strategy

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) are allocating lab resources to Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care facilities to support with and provide state funded COVID-19 screening tests through the Kansas COVID-19 Unified Testing Strategy effort announced by Governor Kelly. Through that effort, KDADS and KDHE have amassed several data points to build an initial view of the status of access to COVID-19 testing for staff across the 700+ KDADS licensed facilities.

Intent of the status report is to provide public awareness to such a critical public health issue, and to encourage facilities that need further assistance in accessing resources to regularly test their personnel (and as desired, their residents) to reach out to KDADS and KDHE for more information.


Please provide your updates to testing status by completing this short seven-question survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KVZDVDS.
