Children and adults who need a caregiver should not be separated from their caregiver during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the case of quarantine or hospitalization, measures must be taken to prevent separation. It is also crucial to ensure that when separation cannot be avoided, special arrangements are in place to prevent neglect, exploitation, abuse or any form of harm. 

This document includes guidance on how to ensure that special consideration is given to children and adults who need a caregiver during the COVID-19 pandemic.
