Coronavirus Self-Protection Precautions for Healthcare Workers Released by University of Toronto
The University of Toronto has released Coronavirus contact precautions for healthcare workers involved with treating patients who have, or are suspected of having, the Coronavirus. The guidelines concentrate on intubation for a suspected or confirmed patient infected with the novel coronavirus, 2019-nCoV. Assembled by infection prevention and control experts at the University of Toronto, these are interim recommendations as the guidelines may change.
The guidelines offer recommendations for routine and non-routine care, but urge healthcare workers to seek advice from their local infectious disease experts as care may differ by region.
