Play • 1 hr 3 min

COVID-19 outbreaks are sadly frequent occurrences in long-term care facilities and correctional institutions. Despite their obvious differences, these settings share a key feature: Large numbers of potentially vulnerable persons placed in close proximity, with a high risk for viral transmission. In this episode, our expert panel discusses the different strategies that health systems and public health authorities can use to protect and care for people in these congregate settings. (Originally recorded January 28, 2021) Moderator: Sebastian Kurz, MD. Panelists: Alice Kim, MD, and Lee Norman, MD.
