Reopening Phases and Locations

In accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health's reopening guidance for nursing homes, we must report to you, in written format, the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) phase of a nursing home and when each nursing home meets certain criteria to advance to the next phase. Each home must spend a minimum of 14 days in a given phase and meet requirements set forth by IDPH and CMS. If the facility identifies a new facility-onset COVID-19 case, the facility must revert immediately to the highest level of mitigation and start over in the phases of reopening.
