Yesterday the CDC held a Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity Webinar. The PowerPoint for this presentation include basic information but some resource links that might be helpful.  Additionally, CDC has postedStrategies for Optimizing the Supply of PPE – members should review.


CDC Updated Infection Control Guidance











APIC - COVID-19 Resources








The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology has created some resources for health care. Click on APIC resources after choosing this link. Members might focus on PPE Dos and Donts Education Posters that apply to infection control in general, public policy updates which include information on surveys and coding, and APIC is allowing free access to their text book chapter on outbreaks until 9/2020. This might be a good resource for members who wish to review their processes.

CDC Guidance on Masks for Health Personnel







This updated CDC guidance alerts state surveyors that staff are not required – on a temporary basis – to validate the date of a facility’s last annual test of the fit of N95 masks worn by workers in Medicare- and Medicaid-certified facilities. CMS is temporarily suspending surveyor validation of the test to minimize the discarded masks associated with such testing. Additionally, the FDA approved a CDC request for an emergency use authorization (EUA) to allow healthcare workers to use certain industrial respirators during the COVID-19 outbreak in healthcare settings. 











COVID-19 Healthcare Planning Checklist - HHS - ASPR (Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response)





This checklist is adapted from a variety of HHS Pandemic Influenza Planning resources. However, it identifies specific activities that should be done to prepare and respond to COVID -19. It is not intended to set forth mandatory requirements by the Federal Government. Review the CDC website for the most current situation materials. Members might consider focusing on the first section – Safety and Infection Control and the last section for long term care organizations and skilled nursing facilities. This provides a good review and some perhaps new ideas for facility emergency preparedness plans.
