CDC Guidance Framework for Resuming Non-COVID-19 Clinical Care During the Pandemic
To provide healthcare systems with a framework to deliver non-COVID-19 health care during the pandemic, the CDC has offered guidance for health care facilities and practices to resume care. You can find guidance here.
Here are some key considerations you should make before making the determination to resume care:
Be prepared to rapidly detect and respond to an increase of COVID-19
cases in the community.
- Stay informed and consult your local health department to monitor trends.
Provide care in the safest way possible.
- Optimize telehealth services and minimize the need for in-person services.
- Follow recommended infection control practices.
Consider that services may need to expand gradually.
- Make decisions based on local epidemiology and state and local health officials’ recommendations
- Prioritize services that, if deferred, could result in patient harm
- Prioritize at-risk populations who would benefit the most from those services.
