COVID-19 Resources for Congregate Living Settings

Congregate living settings refer to a range of facilities where people (most or all of whom are not related) live or stay overnight and use shared spaces (e.g., common sleeping areas, bathrooms, kitchens) including:

  • Shelters
  • Group homes
  • Correctional facilities
  • Children or youth residential settings

Public Health Ontario has developed a variety of resources to help staff and administrators address COVID-19 prevention and control in these settings. These resources can be used along with the support provided by local public health units.
For resources related to COVID-19 in long-term care and retirement homes, please visit our Long-Term Care Resources page.
