The Bottom Line

Vice President Mike Pence recommended to state governors on May 11 that all SNF residents receive COVID-19 testing over the next two weeks, according to Associated Press. President Trump announced on the same call that the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services will distribute 12.9 million swabs to healthcare facilities in the month of May.

While SNF resident testing is currently only a recommendation, President Trump indicated that that testing may become mandatory in the near future.
