Comprehensive Hospital Preparedness Checklist for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)   [open pdf - 359KB]

From the Document: "Planning for a community outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is critical for maintaining healthcare services during a response. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with input from partners, has developed a checklist to help hospitals (acute care facilities) assess and improve their preparedness for responding to a community-wide outbreak of COVID-19. Because of variability of outbreaks, as well as differences among hospitals (e.g., characteristics of the patient population, size of the hospital/community, scope of services), each hospital will need to adapt this checklist to meet its unique needs and circumstances. This checklist should be used as one of several tools for evaluating current plans or in developing a comprehensive COVID-19 preparedness plan."
