COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Jan. 27, 2023: The CDC has listed three Connecticut Counties—Litchfield, Middlesex and New Haven Counties—in the High/Orange category as part of its weekly COVID-19 Community Levels update. Fairfield, Hartford, New London, Tolland and Windham Counties are listed in the Medium/Yellow category.  Because all eight Connecticut counties are either in the High or Medium categories, the Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Map for updates.

Medication Administration Certification

Pursuant to Special Act 17-21, which directed the Departments of Children and Families (DCF), Developmental Services (DDS), and Public Health to perform a Lean process to streamline and standardize the process by which certain types of facilities are licensed by these state agencies, a subcommittee was convened to review and revise the existing process by which DCF, DDS and DPH train and certify unlicensed personnel who assist with medication administration in the state agencies’ licensed facilities.   The process has been divided into two phases: (Phase 1) the uniform interagency medication administration training online curriculum and exam and (Phase 2) agency-specific certification and onsite practicum

 

The training will be piloted late January of 2002 and it is anticipated it will be live in March of 2022.
