Operation Warp Speed Playbook for Allocation and Distribution of COVID-19 Therapeutic Medications

This playbook is intended to support sites interested in administering COVID 19 treatment under EUA including:

  • Existing hospital or community based infusion centers
  • Existing clinical space (e.g. urgent care, emergency depts)
  • Ad hoc new infusion sites (e.g. "hospitals without walls”)

Initial version of playbook focused on:

  • Monoclonal antibody treatment
  • Delivery via infusion
  • Outpatient setting

This playbook will continue to evolve as other treatments and
administration methods become available. We hope this playbook will
be used to help healthcare facilities to start planning on how to
implement monoclonal antibody treatment in an outpatient setting for
those with COVID 19.
