The situation surrounding COVID-19 is evolving quickly, and updated recommendations and adjustments to regulations are constantly released from a number of sources. This page contains a selection of newly-released information that the AAAAI feels will be most valuable to the practicing allergist/immunologist, all in one place. Check back regularly for updates.
Increasing evidence supports the value of wearing cloth face coverings or masks to prevent the transmission of the virus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. To help you educate your patients about this topic, the AAAAI has a new article titled "Do Your Part to Slow the Spread of COVID-19: Wear a Face Covering or Mask". It explains the rationale for wearing face masks, has information for allergy and asthma patients, and dispells common myths about face masks. This article is available as a PDF in English and Spanish to allow you to easily print or share it.
The COVID-19 webinar series from the virtual Practice Management Workshop continues! The webinars provide CME/CE credit and are available free to AAAAI members and their practice staff. Register here.
