Posted 9/4/2020 (updated 9/2/2021)
The section aims to provide the most up-to-date and critical resources for rural healthcare systems preparing for and responding to a COVID-19 surge. The resources span a wide range of healthcare settings (EMS, inpatient and hospital care, ambulatory care, and long-term care) and cover a broad array of topics ranging from behavioral health to healthcare operations to telehealth.
Developed by the COVID-19 Healthcare Resilience Working Group, a partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies to provide support and guidance for healthcare delivery and workforce capacity and protection.
