Infectious Disease Winter Planning and Preparedness for Congregate Facilities


Date Published: October 2022


As more people move indoors for colder weather, it is important to maintain strong infection prevention and control practices to avoid infection. Infection prevention and control practices are important to keep all staff, volunteers, guests, and residents healthy and well. Infectious diseases, such as the flu, COVID-19, and monkeypox (MPX) can spread quickly without adequate infection prevention and control measures in place.

This video will provide information about infectious disease resources for your congregate facilities. The video will offer resources and where to look for information about preparing shelters and other congregate facilities for winter. Below you will find a winter planning resource guide and the slide deck for the video.
