To inform guidance development by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) and decision making by the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET), HIQA is undertaking an ongoing rapid review of guidance for residential care facilities in the context of COVID-19. The review summarises recommendations that have been issued internationally to limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect healthcare workers and residents.

This version contains updated guidance from Centers for Disease Control (US), Communicable Disease Network Australia, Health Protection Scotland, and Public Health England. It also includes new guidance from the Ministry of Health in New Zealand.
