The Covid Care facility will follow strict infection prevention and control practices, the guidelines say, stating that confirmed and suspect cases would be kept in separate partitioned areas and no intermixing will be allowed. The facility will be linked to the surveillance team and an ambulance provider, and important telephone numbers of the RWA/residential society/NGO, doctor, caregiver and ambulance service provider shall be displayed prominently. 

The makeshift facility may be set up in a community hall or common utility area within the premises of residential complex or empty flats which are isolated location-wise from rest of the occupied dwelling. The facility should have a separate entry and exit, with the entrance should have mandatory hand hygiene arrangements and thermal screening provisions for caregivers.

Adequate natural room ventilation shall be ensured, and putting up exhaust fans to vent out air from the facility is desirable. If a suspect case admitted to Covid Care Facility tests negative, the patient will be assessed by the treating doctor and will either be discharged or referred to a non-Covid facility as per requirement. The facility shall be regularly inspected by the RRTs to provide guidance to the RWA/residential society concerned.
