AAFP: A checklist for reopening your practice for “non-essential” face-to-face visits

Eighty percent of primary care clinicians say they continue to limit well and chronic care visits at their practices for COVID-19-related reasons, according to a survey(www.pcpcc.org) conducted April 24-27 by the Primary Care Collaborative and The Larry A. Green Center. Many practices have shifted these “non-essential” visits to telehealth or telephone visits until they can safely resume them face-to-face.

The decision to reopen a practice for in-person visits depends on many factors, including the availability of personal protective equipment, the availability of COVID-19 testing, and the prevalence of COVID-19 cases in your area.(covidtracking.com)

When your practice decides to reopen, the following checklist can help ease the process and keep everyone safe: https://www.aafp.org/journals/fpm/blogs/inpractice/entry/reopening_a_practice.html.
