This information is intended for a range of congregate living settings such as homeless shelters, group homes, supportive housing and other congregate living settings. As facility operators and leaders providing much-needed services, there are steps that you can take to protect the people that rely on their services and the staff and volunteers working there. This information will help your organization assess your needs and implement strategies to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and manage cases and outbreaks of COVID-19 in your facility.
