Free, public tool identifies COVID-19 “vaccine deserts” and helps public health leaders plan for how to equitably deliver the vaccine to the remaining U.S. population lacking access.
As COVID-19 spreads quickly from Europe and Asia to the rest of the world, hospitals play a critical role in treatment of the disease. However, they have also become hot zones for transmission. With rising community spread, it is increasingly important for health care workers to have access to credible information on how best to protect themselves while serving on the frontlines, and for hospitals to be prepared for a surge in patients requiring care.
Drawing on lessons learned from colleagues facing this crisis worldwide, experts from Ariadne Labs have developed guidelines to inform best practices in COVID-19 response protocols across clinical areas. These guidelines are based on expert opinion and the latest available evidence. As information on COVID-19 continues to develop and evolve, we will update this guidance to reflect the best available evidence.
