Guidance for Infection Control in Adult Day Care

Infection control planning is a vital part of reducing the chance of COVID-19 entering and/or spreading within an adult day care facility. 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.
