COVID-19 UPDATE

COVID-19 Risk Resources

New and updated guidance related to COVID-19 emerges daily. We urge healthcare providers to stay alert to information regarding epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of COVID-19. We also recommend that providers remain vigilant regarding new developments and established best practices for infection prevention and control, particularly in relation to patient assessment and triage, infectious disease precautions, hand hygiene, the use of personal protective equipment, and environmental cleaning and disinfection.
