  • Description:
    Updated July 9, 2020

    This interim guidance has been updated based on currently available information about COVID-19 and the current situation in the United States. As healthcare facilities begin to relax restrictions on healthcare services provided to patients (e.g., restarting elective procedures), in accordance with guidance from local and state officials, there are precautions that should remain in place as a part of the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recommendations in this updated guidance are not new (except as noted in the summary of changes above); they have been reorganized into the following sections:

    • Recommended infection prevention and control (IPC) practices for routine healthcare delivery during the pandemic

    • Recommended IPC practices when caring for a patient with suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection

    This guidance is applicable to all U.S. healthcare settings. This guidance is not intended for non-healthcare settings (e.g., schools) OR for persons outside of healthcare settings. For information regarding modes of transmission, clinical management, air or ground medical transport, or laboratory settings, refer to the COVID-19 website.
