ABSTRACT

Guidelines for Continuous Masking and Use of Face Shields in Home Care and Congregate Living Settings   [open pdf - 123KB]

From the Document: "Residents of congregate living sites are at high risk for severe illness or death if exposed to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Congregate Living Settings include Long Term Care, Designated Supportive Living, Seniors Lodges, Group Homes, and other supportive living licensed under the Supportive Living Licensing and Accommodation act. For congregate living sites, steps have been taken, including visitor restriction and staff screening, to attempt to minimize the risk of transmission of COVID-19 into and within a site. For Home Care, restrictions have included pre-screening and point of care assessment at the door screening of clients and others in the household to minimize the risk of either a home care worker being exposed, or a home care worker carrying COVID-19 between settings as they work with different clients."
