Coronavirus Guidance and Resources for Our Providers
In response to the potential wide-ranging impact of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on North Carolina’s population and healthcare community, the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is posting informational resources to deal with the new realities of treating patients with suspected or confirmed cases of the virus. Access East will be sharing those resources, in the date-organized list below, that we feel may be most useful to our partner practices as those resources are made available.
(Other trusted sources for information and updates, all of whom have devoted large portions of their websites to COVID-19: the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and Vidant Health.)
