The ministry is providing guidance to congregate care settings to protect the health and safety of residents, staff and visitors across the province. Specific direction for youth justice open and secure facilities has also been provided to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

It is intended to be followed with other applicable legislation and health guidance including local public health direction in response to local community spread.
