Goal: Aggregate any papers and/or guidance that have been published by states on COVID-19 response for long-term care facilities, from data collection and planning to outbreak response protocols. As you go through the docs, please add vertical columns and put checks by what can be found in each of these links (e.g. provider guidance, patient guidance, friends and family guidance, checklists, etc.). If it isn't clear where the source is (i.e. it isn't a state or CDC), would be helpful to describe a few words (e.g. "K&L Gates is a fully integrated global law firm with lawyers located across five continents). If you see any news articles about practices that are working in any of these facilities, those could be dropped on the second tab, "News Articles" -- to keep guidances and whitepapers separate from news.
