Introduction

This resource brief provides a selection of current, high-quality resources about Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

These resources provide preparedness information for primary care providers, as well as answers to frequently asked questions. These resources also address the needs of special populations that can be vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19, including unhoused populations and the elderly.

About the Issue

Due to the rapid global spread of the virus, the COVID-19 outbreak has been classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization and a national emergency by the White House.

Health centers play a vital role in the national response to the COVID-19 virus, in part by making patients aware of COVID-19 preventive measures and determining if patients need COVID-19 testing. Health centers also coordinate with state and local health departments as part of emergency management planning. And by continuing to provide primary care to their patients, health centers can also relieve congestion in hospital emergency rooms that may become crowded with patients seeking care for COVID-19 infections.
