COVID-19 Congregate Care Playbook

Concern about protecting highly vulnerable seniors from COVID-19 prompted a powerful coalition in Contra Costa County to kick start a rapid infection-control curriculum and learning community for skilled nursing facilities and residential care facilities for seniors.

The COVID-19 Congregate Care Playbook supports congregate living facilities in reducing mortality due to COVID-19 by distilling current guidance into clear, essential actions for leaders, staff, residents, and their families. The Playbook outlines current best practices for key strategies for COVID-19 management and infection control, facilitates proactive training and standardizes tactics for high-risk situations. Each play is a plan designed to help deliver a win through highly coordinated teamwork.
