Georgia OEMS COVID-19 Guidance for First Responders (EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement)

DPH and the Office of EMS and Trauma will make every effort to keep this site up-to-date. Previously circulated guidance documents from OEMS related to COVID-19 have been replaced by this website.

DPH is working with all of our federal, state and local partners in preparation for and response to this emerging public health threat. As part of that response, DPH is recommending that EMS agencies and 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) follow the current guidance from the CDC. 911 centers may also choose to use the latest Emerging Infectious Disease Surveillance Tool published by the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch.
