COVID-19 Resources: Update
April 2020

While it has only been two weeks since we sent our last Express, we want to keep our stakeholders up to date on resources that can help with your COVID-19 planning and response efforts. Please continue to monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage for the most current clinical guidance. The following resources can be found, along with many others, on our Novel Coronavirus Resources Page:

The Healthcare & Public Health Sector Partnership led by the ASPR Division of Critical Infrastructure Protection is actively engaged in responding to COVID-19. If you are interested in receiving regular response bulletins, sign up by emailing

Upcoming Webinars

Establishing Medical Operations Coordination Cells (MOCCs) for COVID-19 Webinar, to be held on April 24, from 2:00-3:15 PM ET, will feature information on the establishment of MOCCs, as well as guidance and lessons learned from jurisdictions that have used this concept for previous emergencies and COVID-19. Register today!


COVID-19 Clinical Rounds Peer-to-Peer Virtual Communities of Practice are a collaborative effort between ASPR, the National Emerging Special Pathogen Training and Education Center (NETEC), and Project ECHO. These interactive virtual learning sessions aim to create a peer-to-peer learning network where clinicians from the U.S. and abroad who have more experience treating patients with COVID-19 share their challenges and successes; a generous amount of time for participant Q & A is also provided.  Three webinar topics are covered every week:

  • EMS: Patient Care and Operations (Mondays, 12:00-1:00 PM ET)
  • Critical Care: Lifesaving Treatment and Clinical Operations (Tuesdays, 12:00-1:00 PM ET)
  • Emergency Department: Patient Care and Clinical Operations (Thursdays, 12:00-1:00 PM ET)

Access previous webinars and sign up today to receive information on upcoming webinars!
