COVID-19 Healthcare Planning Checklist

Mar 31, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

Planning for a potential emerging infectious disease pandemic, like COVID-19, is critical to protecting the health and welfare of our nation. To assist state, local, tribal, and territorial partners in their planning efforts, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response has developed the COVID-19 Healthcare Planning Checklist.

It identifies specific activities your jurisdiction can do now to prepare for, respond to, and be resilient in the face of COVID-19. Many of the activities in this checklist are specific for COVID-19, however many, pertain to any public health emergency. This checklist is adapted from a variety of HHS Pandemic Influenza Pandemic Planning resources. It is not intended to set forth mandatory requirements by the Federal government.

Each jurisdiction should determine for itself whether it is adequately prepared for disease outbreaks in accordance with its own laws and authorities. We strongly encourage continued review of HHS’ Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 guidance which is available on their website for the most current information.
