Overview

Long-term care facilities (LTCFs), including nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities, provide care to some of the most vulnerable populations, including elderly people and those with chronic medical conditions. 
Resources below aim to provide interim guidance for the prevention and control of COVID-19 in LTCFs.

Given the high risk of spread once COVID-19 enters a LTCF, facilities must act immediately to protect residents, families, and staff from serious illness, complications, and death.
