The CDC is offering guidance to health professionals about the coronavirus and evaluating patients for home care or patients with symptoms who present at home.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/guidance-prevent-spread.html and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/guidance-home-care.html    Attached also find a one page information sheet to use with staff, patients and other caregivers who may be increasingly concerned.

 

Please note, this is a good time to review handwashing practices with all staff, and also document your actions to support your emergency preparedness plan related to infectious disease, as the CDC has initiated outreach to local and state health departments-which are a resource to you and your staff. 

 

The risk in the US remains low, however, there is now evidence of person-to-person transmission without the infected person having been in Wuhan China. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) designation of coronavirus as an emergency relates to this information and supports international action and resources to address the virus’ spread.
