L’objectif de cette étude était d’explorer les initiatives mises en œuvre par les établissements de soins de longue durée qui présentaient une plus faible transmission du COVID-19 par rapport à leurs homologues régionaux.

Ever since its emergence, COVID-19 has posed a serious threat to members of the population who are older and have underlying health conditions, with those residing in Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCFs) being particularly susceptible. The purpose of this study was to explore initiatives implemented by LTCFs which had lower COVID-19 transmission compared to their regional counterparts. Of the facilities interviewed, the majority implemented a routine testing schedule for residents utilizing both PCR and Rapid Antigen nasal tests, while also separately housing residents who may be at an increased risk. The results of this study could serve as a guidance for other facilities.
