Key topics that have been discussed in the LLN include:

  • Current evidence-based COVID-19 tools and resources.
  • Temperature checks and COVID-19 screening best practices and creative solutions.
  • Personal protective equipment preservation strategies.
  • Operating room practices with a positive COVID-19 patient.
