On Nov. 12, 2020, the AMA held a webinar in the AMA STEPS Forward™ series: "Keeping Your Practice Open During COVID-19."
As physicians work to keep open their practices during the COVID-19 pandemic, measures to limit the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to patients, caregivers, staff and themselves to ensure the safe delivery of needed care are critical. Building upon and referencing CDC guidance, the American Medical Association has developed a checklist to ensure that medical practices are well-situated to remain open.
