Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Recommendations Re-Opening Facilities to Provide Non-Emergent Non-COVID-19 Healthcare [open pdf - 526KB]
From the Document: "As states and localities begin to stabilize and COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-related healthcare demand decreases, it is important to safely resume care in order to treat ongoing health needs that are currently being postponed. [...] As such, if States or regions have determined with their public health officials that they passed the Gating Criteria (symptoms, cases, and hospitals) announced on April 16, 2020, then they may proceed to Phase I, and subsequently to Phase II of re-opening. Consistent with those recommendations, facilities should check with their State and local authorities to confirm if Gating Criteria have been met in their area. This document refers only to areas in Phase II: States and regions with no evidence of a rebound that satisfy the Gating Criteria."
