NH/ACF Weekly Staff Testing Survey (Week 28)

Linda O'Connell

DOH has finalized the Week 28 NH/ACF Staff Testing Survey.  There are no substantive changes to the survey questions for this week. 

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the Week 28 survey release  (via IHAN alert through HCS) will be adjusted to open on Monday, 11/23 at 9am.  The survey will close promptly on Wednesday, 11/25 at 5pm.

 All facilities will still receive the normal IHAN alerts:

  1. Friday, November 20, 2020: notification of open and close date adjustments;
  2. Monday, November 23, 2020: 9am message with link to the survey;
  3. Tuesday, November 24, 2020: 9am reminder; and
  4. Wednesday, November 25, 2020: 9am and 12pm reminders that the survey will close at 5pm.

 Please be reminded of the following:

  1. If you do not complete the survey, you will not receive Test Kits or PPE from NYS for the upcoming testing period.
  2. If you do not receive a confirmation email, then the system did not log your survey submission.
    1. Most respondents who do not receive confirmation emails have misspelled their email address in the survey.
    2. If resubmitting, refresh the webpage and re-enter the survey information.
    3. If problems persist, email DOH ASAP.

 If you have any questions, DOH is ready to help.  You can email either covidadultcareinfo@health.ny.gov or covidnursinghomeinfo@health.ny.gov as soon as a question or an issue appears, so that DOH can troubleshoot the problem.
