Communal Living

Facilities that house a number of residents with large gathering spaces, such as long-term care facilities, personal care homes, assisted living facilities or seniors condominiums, must avoid activities where residents congregate in one area.  This includes communal dining and other social activities where groups of 10 or more gather.  Social distancing is essential to protect our most vulnerable citizens.
