Unfortunately, COVID-19 will last indefinitely among all of us, so the Therapeutic Communities (TCs) need to organize themselves to carry out the new reception procedures, especially considering that the public served by the TCs has great chances of being contaminated with COVID- 19 due to their social vulnerability. TCs that have structure, trained human resources, guarantee of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE), notification flow with the municipality’s Health Department and contingency plan, will be able to carry out the quarantine process (14 days) within the organization itself.
For this reason, Federação Brasileira de Comunidades Terapêuticas (FEBRACT) published the Guidance manual for therapeutic communities “Basic care in relation to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19)“. This guide for new entries, visits and outing is prepared in accordance with the guidelines of the PUBLIC TECHNICAL NOTE Nº 01/2020 of National Agency for Health Surveillance – ANVISA.
