ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York state loosened its testing guidelines for nursing home staff.

Fully vaccinated nursing home staff will no longer need to get COVID-19 testing twice a week. 

The New York State Department of Health issued the updated guidelines Thursday afternoon.

Unvaccinated workers are still required to get tested, and all employees will still need to be screened every shift.

Residents will be screened every day.
