Updates and Resources on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2)

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, the American Hospital Association has worked closely with the CDC, and other federal, state and local partners to respond to this challenge and to make sure hospitals and health systems have the most up-to-date information.

As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, hospitals and health systems know our patients and communities are increasingly concerned whether and how the virus is spreading in communities. Hospitals and health systems are:

  • Identifying, isolating and informing local public health officials about new cases of patients known or suspected of having the virus.
  • Following CDC recommendations on how to best use and preserve existing supplies of personal protective equipment due to concerns about limited supplies.
  • Protecting health care workers on the front lines, ensuring they have the personal protective equipment, training and support they need to provide care to patients.

The following tools include resources and developments related to COVID-19.
