dc.description.abstractThis document provides guidance specific to the COVID-19 pandemic in outpatient and ambulatory care settings. Outpatient and ambulatory care settings are defined here as those providing health care on an outpatient basis and can include hospital-based and non-hospital based clinics, physician offices, community health centers and urgent care centers. Individuals responsible for policy development, implementation and oversight of infection prevention and control (IPC) measures in outpatient and ambulatory care settings should be familiar with relevant IPC background documents on Routine Practices and Additional Precautions and occupational health and safety legislation. The term "staff" is intended to include anyone working in outpatient and ambulatory care settings, including but not limited to healthcare workers. Measures to control COVID-19 in outpatient and ambulatory settings should be based on local and regional epidemiology. Provinces and territories may have IPC and testing guidance that is specific to their local context.
