ACOG is closely monitoring the outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We are monitoring updates and advisories from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). The safety of our members, employees, and those who participate in ACOG events are our paramount concern and we are following the expertise and guidance provided by the CDC and WHO and are working with state departments of health, local authorities, and event venues to make informed decisions about our meetings.
If you have questions or concerns, we’ve established an email inbox firstname.lastname@example.org where you can send inquiries related to this topic.
ACOG also recently released a Practice Advisory: Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The CDC has released Interim Clinical Guidance for Management of Patients with Confirmed 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Infection and guidance for Evaluating and Reporting Persons Under Investigation (PUI). ACOG will continue to closely monitor the evolution of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in collaboration with the CDC. New and updated information will be shared as it becomes available.
