Abstract

For most of us a cold, or even the flu, poses nothing more than a minor inconvenience, some time at home in bed, and maybe a trip to see your physician. For residents and tenants in long-term care settings, however, coming down with the flu can be life threatening. Compromised immune systems and respiratory or cardiac issues can become more than just a challenge. Because of this, it is important to think about how a safe environment can be maintained while at the same time allowing for visitors and social activities.
