NHANJ welcomes State's revised guidance allowing for expanded indoor visitation, antigen testing

“We welcome the State’s revised guidance that allows for indoor visitation for our residents and their families and recognizes the benefits of antigen testing.  With the additional testing that’s becoming available to nursing homes and mitigation measures including social distancing and universal masking, we believe that visitation can happen safely. With that said, we know that community spread is directly correlated to rising cases in facilities, so we have to be diligent and we have to be careful.”

--Andy Aronson, director, Nursing Home Advocates of New Jersey
