Beginning Monday Long-Term Care Residents can Receive Visitors

Tennessee officials will soon start allowing some visitors at long-term care centers that meet certain criteria.

On Wednesday, Gov. Bill Lee’s office said the visitation options will be available starting Monday, June 15.

Facilities must first have tested all staff and residents once and comply with weekly staff retesting regulations. They also must have no new COVID-19 cases in the past 28 days and stability of the disease in the community where the facility is located. Visitation can occur outdoors, using a visitation booth or protective barrier, or in a resident’s room if the visitor documents a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours.
