The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to affect elderly populations more severely, on average, than younger individuals, and has been particularly dangerous in the concentrated environments of long-term care communities. Transmission is rapid if left unchecked.

We’ve compiled a complete checklist that draws upon official federal guidelines and suggestions from leading industry associations to help prioritize a multi-pronged effort to reduce infection and create a safe environment for seniors.
