CMS updated the FAQs on Nursing Home Visitation guidance on October 6, 2020.  The update comes in the form of this statement – in red font – at the top of the FAQ document.

On September 17, 2020, CMS released new guidance for nursing home visitation during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency that supersedes this guidance. See CMS memorandum QSO-20-39-NH, Nursing Home Visitation-COVID-19.

 This is the document – QSO-20-39-NH – that now supersedes the FAQ (the hyperlink in the 1st paragraph of this blog).
