Some health authorities and organizations are instructing that all elective procedures be postponed. AAAASF does not dictate adherence to recommendations regarding case selection during this health crisis, but expects facilities to adhere to any legal or regulatory orders. AAAASF continues to monitor the situation closely and expects that facilities that chose to operate will so do in a manner that is safe for patients, staff, and members of the community.

AAAASF has developed Facility Guidance and Resources to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Download the full Facility Guidance and Resources document.
