Home Care for Patients with COVID-19 with Mild Symptoms and Management of their Contacts

This interim guidance was developed to meet the need for recommendations on safe home care for patients with suspected COVID-19 who present with mild symptoms and on public health measures related to the management of their contacts.

It has been updated with the latest information and is intended to guide public health and infection prevention and control (IPC) professionals, health care managers and health care workers (HCWs) when addressing issues related to home care for patients with suspected COVID-19 who present with mild symptoms and when managing their contacts. This guidance is based on evidence about COVID-19 and the feasibility of implementing IPC measures at home. For the purpose of this document, “caregivers” refers to parents, spouses, and other family members or friends without formal health care training.
