Overview: Designated high-risk communities have to designate an infection prevention/control manager, who will set up an emergency contact system within the group and manage infection prevention/control measures within the facility. The infection prevention/control manager will be required to regularly check body temperature and presence of respiratory symptoms of workers, patients, residents, attendees, members and/or participants (depending on the type of community). Visitor control measures should also be implemented.- If a patient or resident is found with a fever or respiratory symptoms, they should immediately be reported to public health center, and be isolated in a separate space.
