Thursday, March 26, 2020

All healthcare facilities should implement plans to conserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for DC’s most vulnerable patients, frontline healthcare workers, and first responders. Healthcare facilities should have already implemented other engineering and administrative control measures in conjunction with these recommendations.

The document summarizes contingency and crisis options for all DC healthcare facilities as of March 26, 2020. For additional detailed informational about strategies for optimizing the supply of PPE, please visit the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/ppe-strategy/index.html
