Given their congregate nature and population served, assisted living facilities (ALFs) are at high risk of COVID-19 spreading and affecting their residents. If infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, assisted living residents—often older adults with underlying chronic medical conditions—are at increased risk of serious illness. CDC is aware of suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 among residents of ALFs in multiple states. Recent experience with outbreaks in nursing homes has also reinforced that residents with COVID-19 may not report typical symptoms such as fever or respiratory symptoms; some may not report any symptoms. Unrecognized asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic infections likely contribute to transmission in these settings. Because of this, CDC is recommending that the general public wear a cloth face covering for source control whenever they leave their home. Updates were also made to CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Patients with Suspected or Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Healthcare Settings to address universal source control for everyone in a healthcare facility. Refer to that guidance for more detailed recommendations, including when facemasks versus cloth face coverings could be used.
