Long-term care facility visitation lightened

Staff Reports

Governor Ron DeSantis, last Thursday, announced that he has directed the Division of Emergency Management

to update Florida’s emergency order on long-term care facility visitation. The updated order has four main provisions: removes the current prohibition on children visitation, eases restrictions on outdoor visitation, clarifies that there are no social distancing requirements for compassionate caregivers and eliminates the 5-person maximum number of general visitors.
