On July 22, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would begin distribution of COVID-19 (coronavirus) testing equipment to nursing homes, beginning with nursing homes in “hot spots.” The file below provides information on what nursing homes have received allocations of testing equipment (Allocation tab) and the counties identified as “hot spots” (Hot Spots tab). The information can be searched and sorted by state, county name, and facility name. We will post any updates to the CMS list every two weeks.

For more information on the program and testing equipment, see CMS’s Frequently Asked Questions: COVID-19 Testing at Skilled Nursing Facilities/ Nursing Homes.
