NPWH Statement and Resources on COVID-19
NPWH is closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concerning the outbreak of a respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (“COVID-19”) that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in almost 70 locations internationally, including in the United States. NPWH encourages our members to check the CDC website daily.
In particular, we encourage our members to follow CDC recommendations regarding pregnant women, in-patient obstetric care, breastfeeding, and the use of facemasks for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings.
