CDI COVID-19 survival toolkit

At the time of this resource's publication, COVID-19 has spread to all 50 states including the District of Columbia. To date there have been nearly 500 deaths in the United States and the virus is spreading rapidly. As more people are being tested, the incidence of infection is rising at an alarming rate.

While hospitals are now beginning to treat COVID-19 patients, we anticipate the number of cases to rise. For those hospitals that are actively treating COVID-19, they are in the trenches on the front lines and we want to offer our support as they move through this pandemic. Please download this free resource to learn more about the signs, symptoms, and presentation of possible COVID-19 positive patients.
