Monday, March 16, 2020

Dear colleagues,

Updates for the inpatient and acute care providers:

The information regarding the acute care management of patients with COVID-19 follows standard aerosol precautions to protect the health care team. Most treatment is supportive unless respiratory insufficiency develops. Please review the PDF attached that gives guidance to the use of PPE in various clinical settings.

Guidance from the CDC for health care professionals is lengthy, but very helpful. Below are two links that get you to specific information.

Additional references for suggestions on clinical management:

Thank you,

Henry Sullivant MD, VP CMO
