Key Points

Community isolation centers (CICs) give people experiencing mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms a safe place to isolate and can help conserve healthcare facility resources.
People with mild or moderate illness who have been tested and are waiting for their results should be encouraged to isolate at home until they know their status to avoid becoming infected by other CIC patients.
CICs are not intended to care for severely ill patients. If resources allow, individuals with increased risk of severe illness should seek care at a healthcare facility or hospital where advanced care and treatment can be provided.
Establishing a CIC requires early planning to supply adequate resources and ensure operations are sustainable.
Summary of Recent Changes
Added recommendations to increase ventilation in CICs by opening doors and windows and using fans to increase air flow.
Community healthcare workers are encouraged to be vaccinated for COVID-19 when the vaccine becomes available to them to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection and hospitalization from working in high-risk settings.
