Coronavirus – guidance for health workers


Child professionals working in the health sector may be interested in new coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO).

The WHO has made available links to various publications regarding the rights, roles and responsibilities of health workers, including infection control and prevention and risk assessment & management. There is also a specific technical guidance for schools, workplaces and institutions.

Each country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic is being rolled out based on how the virus is taking hold in that particular country, and reflects its own particular needs and interests, and so you will, naturally, already be following the guidance of your own government.
