RESOURCES

This Coalition does not presume to offer medical guidance or opinions. Rather, we have based our operational suggestions on public health material produced by reputable authorities, and we have considered guidance written by our peers in related fields or businesses. Most of the material listed below is from the United States, but we are aware that similar guidance is being written every day in other parts of the world.

Here are some of the publicly available materials we have found valuable, hyperlinked to the source documents.
