FW: NEW! Infection Prevention and Control Guidance and Webinar

Working under the direction of Argentum’s COVID Advisory Council, the Infection Prevention and Control Work Group has developed guidance for infection prevention and control (IPC) specifically for assisted living communities.

The comprehensive guidance begins with an overview of the goals for an IPC program and follows with information on 16 infectious diseases, as well as measures and considerations for addressing emerging pathogens. This guidance is intended to help communities assess readiness for various infectious diseases and emerging pathogens, and strengthen operations where appropriate.
