New guidance on infection prevention and control for COVID-19 in healthcare settings

Technical report by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control provides guidance to EU/EEA healthcare facilities and healthcare providers on infection prevention and control measures for the management of suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection in healthcare settings, including long-term care facilities. It also offers guidance on the management of specimens at laboratories in the EU/EEA.

This report focuses on measures to be applied in settings with increasing community transmission, a growing demand for care of COVID-19 patients and ensuing staff issues in the event of shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare facilities in EU/EEA countries and the United Kingdom.
