Aerosol-Generating Medical Interventions on Suspected and Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

These recommendations apply to aerosol-generating medical procedures (AGPs) carried out on patients who are suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. In contexts of sustained community transmission, risk assessments must be performed to determine whether these recommendations shall also apply during AGPs on individuals who are asymptomatic or have unknown COVID-19 status

See section: AGP management for patients determined to be at no risk of having COVID-19 (“cold patients”).

An overview table of recommendations is provided in the appendix.
