AHCA’s ESS: Daily Long Term Care Facilities Reporting Update
Pursuant to Governor Ron DeSantis’ Executive Order 20-51 and at the direction of State Surgeon General Rivkees regarding COVID-19, the Agency for Health Care Administration opened the event “COVID-19 Monitoring” in the Emergency Status System (ESS) to monitor health care facility census, inventory, needs, and other related information statewide.
Effective December 1, 2020, the Agency has updated the “additional info” tab to include questions concerning PPE supply levels.
Please continue to report the current Bed Census and Available Beds and the Add’l Info tabs daily by 10 AM ET until further notice.
Descriptions are available for each question for reporting correctly. Please refer to the revised questions and the “descriptions” posted on the ESS Resources page:
