ABSTRACT

Guidelines for the Implementation of Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions Against COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Messages: "Non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI) are public health measures that aim to prevent and/or control SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] transmission in the community. As long as there is no effective and safe vaccine to protect those at risk of severe COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], NPI are the most effective public health interventions against COVID-19. These ECDC [European Union and European Economic Area] guidelines detail available options for NPI in various epidemiologic scenarios, assess the evidence for their effectiveness and address implementation issues, including potential barriers and facilitators."
