Kentucky Phased Resumption of Group Activities, Communal Dining, Off-Site Appointments and Visitation at LTC Facilities

On June 25, 2020, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services (CHFS) provided guidance to long term care providers concerning the resumption of certain activities. Beginning June 29, all long term care facilities may resume recreational and therapeutic group activities, communal dining, and transportation for non-emergent off-site appointments—as long as certain prerequisites are met and safeguards are in place.  Assisted Living Communities, Licensed Personal Care Homes and Family Care Homes may resume limited visitation starting June 29, while Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), Nursing Facilities (NF), Nursing Homes (NH) and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF-IID) may start limited visitation on July 15.  For additional details, please refer to  Phased Reduction of Restrictions for Long Term Care Facilities.
