Dear RTS/INF Test Center,
As we have been communicating, we are actively monitoring COVID-19 (coronavirus) across the country. Our priority continues to be the safety and well-being of the test center staff, evaluators and, of course, your candidates.
Although many states are starting to make some initial modifications to stay at home orders, there has been no relaxation on social distancing requirements. Nurse aide testing, in particular the administration of the skills exam, requires that candidates and evaluators have direct physical contact with each other. As such, we have decided to extend the suspension of CNA testing in all states we operate until July 13, 2020, or whenever conditions are deemed safe to re-open.
We are evaluating ways that we can return to testing in a safe manner during this time of social distancing and will engage with you in the coming weeks about additional precautions and measures that you may be asked to take in order for us to resume testing in your facility.
We will continue to monitor government guidance and notifications from public health officials to be sure we can safely serve our test center staff, evaluators and candidates as soon as local conditions allow.
