Candida auris (also called C. auris) is a fungus that causes serious infections. Patients with C. auris infection, their family members and other close contacts, public health officials, laboratory staff, and healthcare workers can all help stop it from spreading.
The Hamilton County Health Department has released a comprehensive toolkit that is intended for use by congregate care settings that fall within our jurisdiction. The guide outlines protocols for care staff to follow when responding to Candida auris (C. auris) within their facility.
