Emergency Physicians Recommend Policy Changes to Effectively Combat U.S. COVID-19 Outbreak

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation braces for a widespread outbreak of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, today the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) sent Congress and other policymakers a series of key policy changes necessary to mitigate the impact and spread of the virus in the U.S.

ACEP's recommendations center around three main objectives: providing access to care for those infected or suspected infected; securing an adequate health care workforce; and ensuring adequate resource allocation. Among the specific policy changes, ACEP recommends:

As anticipation grows for more widespread community transmission of COVID-19 in the U.S., emergency physicians are on the frontlines of caring for those affected. As the national medical society representing emergency medicine, ACEP is the preeminent source for clinical, advocacy and emergency patient guidance. ACEP is producing a series of resources and checklists for emergency departments and the public to keep our health care workers and patients safe. You can visit www.acep.org/coronavirus for ACEP's policy recommendations and the latest clinical guidance for emergency care teams.

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is the national medical society representing emergency medicine.
