ASCA recently released 10 recommendations for ASCs to follow when performing necessary procedures at this time. The recommendations align with AAAHC standards and suggest centers use prescreening measures, social distancing, personal protective equipment and postoperative screening to prevent the spread of COVID-19, among others.
