A new COVID-19 resource page on EMS.gov provides easy to find links to the most relevant and up-to-date information from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NHTSA Office of EMS and other Federal agencies involved in the response to the pandemic. This includes guidance for treating potential COVID-19 patients, information on PPE use and supplies and processes for handling healthcare providers who have been exposed to coronavirus.
In addition, materials such as the ASPR EMS Infectious Disease playbook, the IOM Crisis Standards of Care framework and the NHTSA EMS Pandemic Guidelines are all available for download.
The COVID-19 EMS resource page will be periodically updated to add the latest information and link to the most current guidance from the CDC and other agencies.
Also, be sure to watch the most recent special edition EMS Focus webinar, “Crisis Standards of Care and COVID-19: What EMS Needs to Know.”
