Long-Term Care Facility (LTCF) Testing

The Utah Department of Health (UDOH) and the Health Economic and Recovery Outreach (HERO) Project at the University of Utah have partnered together to establish a project that will provide an increased understanding of the risks of COVID-19 transmission in Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCF) along the Wasatch Front.

Because UDOH remains concerned about the ongoing hazard of COVID-19 in long-term care facilities this portion of the project aims to provide guidance for policies related to these facilities. We are recruiting long-term care facilities to participate in a study of COVID antibody response, using tests that distinguish natural infection from vaccine-induced immunity.
