Appropriate infection prevention practices protect health care workers (HCW) from contracting infectious diseases in the workplace. For COVID-19 this entails standard precautions at all times, contact and droplet precautions during routine care of a COVID-19 patient and contact and airborne precautions when performing aerosol generating procedures.
To assist you and your team, there is now a newly created COVID-19 safe daily work practise guide for medical employees.
The guide provides guidance for doctors on COVID safe routine work and clinical practices. I encourage you to download the guide, familiarise yourself with it, and share it with your team.
