COVID-19 Resources and Information

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): CDNA National Guidelines for Public Health Units is now available on the Commonwealth website

Following endorsement from AHPPC, please be advised that the following have now been published on the ICEG webpage

  • The use of face masks and respirators in the context of COVID-19; and
  • Guidance on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in hospitals during the COVID-19 outbreak

 

 

 

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare has developed a number of resources which are available here. Two of these resources set out specific requirements in relation to infection prevention and control and COVID-19:

  • Infection Prevention and Control COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment
  • Special precautions for COVID-19 Designated Zones

Posters are also available to promote infection prevention and control in the COVID-19 environment and illustrate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) under current circumstances. Here are the links to download the posters:
