"The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for outbreak prevention, control and management in Alberta’s Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing facilities.

The focus of these guidelines is for emergency homeless shelters. Some transitional housing sites have home living or supportive living areas. As there are already guidelines in place for home living/supportive living facilities in Alberta, these guidelines would be used if there was a communicable disease outbreak. The Zone MOH/Designate will determine if the guidelines for Supportive Living and Home Living Facilities or guidelines for Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing are most suitable to manage the situation". - Guidelines for Outbreak Prevention, Management and Control in Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing Sites
