Long-Term Care Facilities RCAT Extension

The Department of Health (DOH) and Department of Human Services (DHS) announced the Regional Congregate Care Assistance Teams (RCAT) will continue to provide COVID-19 outbreak support to facilities from March 1, 2021 through May 31, 2021. The continuation of the RCATs is possible due to additional funding that was made available to them. Those facilities that were previously eligible for the Regional Response Health Collaborative (RRHC) program will also be eligible for the RCAT. Facilities experiencing outbreaks may request assistance with personal protective equipment (PPE), staffing, and testing. Please refer to this document for additional information and some great resources.
