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:
- 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.
