The ODH order can be found here and provides a comprehensive framework of requirements to be followed in everything from the advance scheduling of visits, screening of visitors for COVID-19, assuring that social distancing can be facilitated and cleanliness maintained. Visits are limited to a maximum of two (2) visitors and thirty (30) minutes. The order also requires facility providers to regularly report visitation information on-line. The order itself should be thoroughly understood to assure full compliance.
