Updated version of CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Veterinary Clinics Treating Companion Animals During the COVID-19 Response

The CDC just notified us that the agency has posted an updated version of Interim Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Veterinary Clinics Treating Companion Animals During the COVID-19 Response. Revisions were made to clarify PPE recommendations based on situational risk factors and to update guidance for returning to normal clinic practices.

We sincerely appreciate the CDC’s attention to AVMA members’ concerns regarding the original document. A review of the updated version indicates CDC was able to accommodate many of our requested revisions and within a very short internal agency clearance window. In addition, the document now points directly to some of the AVMA’s resource materials.
