On the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance web page for Adult Day Care facilities is a document to help in creation of facility-specific infection control plans. Use of this document and its sample tools is not required but will help facilities implement best practices that will protect clients and staff from contracting and spreading the virus.
