CMS Logo "This information was collected by the QIOs in late April 2020, and compiled by CMS and its contractors to provide a rapid-access compendium for providers and administrators of nursing homes in the United States to learn from the many creative plans that state governments and other entities have put into operation in a short period of time."

Updated March 2021, CMS published a toolkit that catalogs innovative solutions designed at the state level to protect vulnerable nursing home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.


This document is a compilation of actions employed by organizations, including state governments, in the United States and outlying territories to assist nursing homes in meeting the needs of nursing home residents since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic recognized in early 2020.
