From the Overview: "This document provides guidance on the identification or screening of healthcare workers (HCWs) and inpatients with suspected COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Rational, requirements, and considerations will be discussed for three broad case identification strategies: Passive strategies: Reporting/alerts are initiated by the data source (e.g., healthcare worker or treating clinician) based on a known set of rules or regulations. Enhanced passive strategies: Reporting/alerts are initiated by the data source with an added mechanism to prompt data collection, review, and/or reporting. Active strategies: Reporting/alerts are initiated by the centralized health authority (e.g., Ministry of Health, facility infection preventionist, facility administration) using a known set of rules or regulations."
