The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated its health care facility operations guidance to reflect the current COVID-19 pandemic environment.

The document outlines goals and strategies for U.S. health care facilities to operate effectively and safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, including recommendations to adjust the way they deliver services to reduce the need to provide in-person care, follow infection prevention and control recommendations tailored to their setting and provide necessary in-person clinical services for conditions other than COVID-19 in the safest way possible, minimizing disease transmission to patients, health care personnel and others.
