CDC releases summary of guidelines for COVID-19 response

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released a document that summarizes the CDC’s initiatives, activities, and tools in support of the government response to COVID-19. The document includes information on general and healthcare surveillance as well as previously posted guidance on infection control, contact tracing, and testing. Additionally, the document includes a standardized way to look at the gating criteria to reopening the economy, to moving from phase to phase.

This document is one of two new tools released by the CDC on Wednesday.  The second document provides guidance on reopening camps, schools, bars, restaurants, and kids’ sports.
