The purpose of this page is to provide information to all members of our community -- clinicians and non-clinicians.

Please keep in mind there are many different infectious illnesses, and the U.S. Healthcare community - including Global Medical Response (GMR) - has the training, equipment and processes necessary to safely care for these patients. All caregivers are trained in the necessary precautions to protect against contamination from diseases like the novel coronavirus.

On the right hand side of this page, you will find links with more information on education and precautions.
