Recommended Guidance for Preventing Spread of COVID-19 in Adult Day Programs
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is committed to protecting the health of the citizens of Illinois. Early information on coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) suggests older adults and people with chronic or underlying health conditions have a heightened risk of getting seriously ill if they become infected. An important step to preventing the spread of COVID-19 is to eliminate congregations of large groups. For this reason, and considering current state actions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, IDPH is recommending the closure of Adult Day Programs.
