Summary: This AHRQ supports a pilot project that aimed to evaluate the physical distancing restrictions
and other mandates put in place in long-term care homes in Ontario by Directive 3 during
the COVID-19 pandemic and their effect on the health and wellness of LTC residents. LTC
homes in Southeastern Ontario participated in a survey to capture information on the
implementation of public health measures. Homes that participated in this survey will
receive a facility-specific report on the health and wellness of their residents during the
COVID-19 pandemic.
