Long-Term Care Facility Guidance

Long-Term Care Facilities are at high risk of being affected by respiratory pathogens like COVID-19. There are several important actions that facilities must address to maintain a safe operation including: daily health checks/screenings for staff and participants, sanitizing in accordance with CDC guidelines, social distancing (6 feet apart), hand hygiene and mask wearing. Proper training, prevention and infection control is critical to protect both residents and healthcare personnel.
