Long Term Care Facility Baseline Testing Strike Team

To assist in reopening long-term care facilities, local public health is partnering with Gundersen Palmer Lutheran Hospital and MercyOne Oelwein Medical Center to establish a Fayette County long-term care Baseline Testing Strike Team.

This Strike Team will go into long-term facilities and do the initial baseline testing of residents & staff in addition to providing education/training to their staff for on-going testing as local public health will only be conducting the initial baseline test.
