Dear valued user,
Thank you for using Clearpol. Your support has been invaluable to us and we truly appreciate it. We launched Clearpol two years ago and thousands of users like you have joined us in our mission to simplify healthcare compliance. During the pandemic, we put Clearpol out for free as our way of helping, so you could focus on taking care of your residents.
As we move forward, we are determined to empower you with cutting-edge AI-enabled tools that will make managing compliance effortless. To bring this vision to life we've partnered with UC Berkeley, a leader in public health and AI research. We will also launch a PRO subscription starting March 1st to ensure the sustainability of Clearpol and to continuously improve the platform for all users. After March 1st, many existing, new, and future features will require a PRO subscription.
As a token of appreciation, we will be offering early adopters, students, and other special users the opportunity to be grandfathered in at an incredibly steep discount. Look out for future communications if you fall into that category.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We look forward to serving you in the future.
The Clearpol Team

AFL 21-28.3, COVID-19 Testing, Vaccination Verification and PPE for SNF HCP -- Booster Deferral
This AFL allows HCP who have completed their primary vaccination series and can provide proof of subsequent recent COVID-19 infection to defer booster administration for up to 90 days from the date of clinical diagnosis or first positive test. In some situations, this may extend the booster dose requirement beyond March 1st and it is based on the 2/22/2022 CA Public Health Officer Order Health Care Worker Vaccine Requirement that requires HCP to be up to date with vaccinations and received boosted by 3/1, unless exempt.
This revision also still requires at least twice weekly COVID-19 testing for all regular unvaccinated exempt and booster-eligible HCP who have not yet received their booster in long-term care settings. Those working no more than one shift per week or who don’t work in areas where care is provided or to which residents don’t have access for any purpose must undergo weekly testing. Those working less often than weekly must be tested within 48 hours before their shift.
HCP not yet eligible for boosters or who show proof of infection must be in compliance no later than 15 days after the recommended timeframe for receiving the booster dose. This AFL supersedes AFL 21-28.2.

The California Department of Health issued an All Facilities Letter (AFL) requiring skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to implement processes for verifying the vaccination status of all healthcare personnel (HCP) and tracking the results of SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic screening testing. The letter mandates HCP to be up to date with vaccinations and receive boosters by March 1, 2022, unless exempt. Facilities must begin testing booster-eligible HCP who have not yet received their booster by December 27, 2021, and be in full compliance by January 7, 2022. The AFL also strongly recommends that all HCP in SNFs undergo at least twice-weekly screening testing. Additionally, the letter requires facilities to provide respirators to all unvaccinated workers in indoor work settings where care is provided to patients or residents. SNFs must have a plan in place for tracking verified worker vaccination status and make documentation available upon request.
