- Assisted Living,
- Long Term Care
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending consideration of the following practices when SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza viruses are found to be co-circulating based upon local public health surveillance data and testing at local healthcare facilities. While these considerations are specific to care of residents residing in nursing homes, some practices could be adapted for use in other long-term care settings (e.g. assisted living facilities).
