  • Increased frequency of cleaning and infection control measures
  • Enhanced symptom monitoring
  • Reduced movement of staff and residents
  • Temporary suspension of social visits (essential visits are not impacted)

Public health officials will only declare the outbreak over when the chains of transmission have stopped.
