Course Summary

With the changes in COVID-19 variants and infection rates worldwide, continuing review and revision of the recommended measures to prevent disease spread within a healthcare setting is needed. Preventing SARS-CoV-2 spread requires ongoing consideration of infection control practices, which should consider transmission by droplet, aerosol, and other body fluid contact. As the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 spread continues to evolve, healthcare workers depend upon current infection control and prevention measures for public safety and to help reduce transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 infection.
