New Admission testing or isolation

HI -

I'm wondering how other facilities (LTC and inpatient) are handling new admissions. Are you isolation for 14 days to watch for Covid 19 symptoms? Are you testing all admission and isolating until results are back? Or none of the above and just monitor for symptoms.

We're automatically isolating on my unit for 14 days. All new admission to the building come to my unit. Without proper ppe/staffing. Don't even get me started on that.
