Preparedness Checklists

The recommendations on this page are no longer in effect and will not be updated.

Page Summary

Who this is for: This page houses checklists that were developed by CDC and the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) to help healthcare facilities prepare for managing patients with infectious diseases such as Ebola virus disease (EVD).

What this is for: Facilities should review infection control policies and procedures and incorporate plans for administrative, environmental, and communication measures. Facilities should also define the individual work practices that will be required to detect the introduction of a patient with EVD or other emerging infectious disease, prevent spread, and manage the impact on patients, the facility, and staff. These checklists are not intended to set forth mandatory requirements or establish national standards.
