This Guidance for Group Homes and Congregate Settings, developed by Toronto Public Health, provides a comprehensive overview of infection prevention and control protocols and key considerations for congregate settings. It includes useful links to additional guidance documents and posters to support education and awareness of protocols and best practices.
These recommendations aim to help reduce the risk of exposures to acute respiratory illness including COVID-19 in congregate settings. Congregate settings include settings where a number of people reside. This guidance can be adapted for group homes, rooming houses and personal care rooming homes.
