COVID-19: Information for Providers

Editor's Note: This page is continuing to be updated during the pandemic by APTA Home Health's Practice Committee. Click here to email your suggestions.

Across the world, health care providers have taken varying precautionary measures to flatten the curve. In general, when there is an opportunity to practice social distancing, we encourage HCPs to do so. Also, "first do no harm" suggests HCPs should weigh the risks of providing care versus not. As always, patient care is an individualized case-by-case determination for PTs, who are relied on for clinical judgment. Continue to follow available CDC guidance, and remember that the risks of being too cautious may be less than the risks of not being cautious enough.
