AAA Sends Letter Requesting Priority Testing for EMS
AAA Sends Letter to Requesting Priority Testing for First Responders
Earlier today, the AAA sent a letter to the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) requesting that first responders with COVID-19 symptoms be given priority one status in the order of groups to be tested for COVID-19. The USPHS had issued guidance that assigned first responders a level two status. The AAA stated paramedics and EMTs should be included in the top level with other health care professionals who are on the front lines of caring for patients with COVID-19. Read the Letter HERE.
