dc.descriptionThis guidance document replaces the previous issued document “Residential Care Facilities Preliminary Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control Guidance including Outbreak Control in Residential Care Facilities (RCF) and Similar Units” Publication. People living in Long Term Residential Care (RCF) settings (nursing homes, disability and mental health) are vulnerable populations and have been identified by the World Health Organisation as being at a higher risk of adverse outcomes from COVID-19 and at higher risk of infection due to living in close proximity to others. Factors contributing to high risk of adverse outcomes may include age, the high prevalence of underlying medical conditions. Factors contributing to higher risk of infection may include high care support with the activities of daily living in collective high physical contact environments. The response to COVID-19 in RCF should be based on preparedness, early recognition, isolation, care and prevention of onward spread.en_US
