With the global spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), including Iowa, IAFP wishes to support members with the most accurate information as the Coronavirus situation evolves and wishes to direct members to three primary resources:
CDC’s Coronavirus Center for Healthcare Professionals: Updated daily. Direct access to interim guidance on key issues, extensive health resources, etc.
AAFP’s Coronavirus Center: As more is being learned about the coronavirus infection, the AAFP has a team that is monitoring the situation on a daily basis and posting all relevant updates on its dedicated COVID-19 resource on AAFP.org. There is a lot of evolving, and sometimes inaccurate, information about the situation, so members can be confident that this page contains the most recent information they need that is aligned with the CDC and focused squarely on family medicine.
IOWA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH – Provides a variety of resources for physicians, patients and the public
NEW WEBSITE: The state of Iowa has released an updated dashboard on coronavirus.iowa.gov that will be updated daily to include comprehensive tracking of COVID-19 in Iowa.
Other resources and helpful information:
