A One Health approach to infection prevention and control on animal farms to address COVID-19 and other infections

  |   COVID-19, One Health

Created by the University of Washington’s Center for One Health Research, Harborview Medical Center, and the Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety Continuing Education Program, training modules have been developed to assist the process of creating and implementing infection prevention and control plans on animal farms that will control COVID-19 as well as other infectious diseases important for both human and animal health. Through workplace hazard identification, control and evaluation, and integration of occupational medicine services, such programs can protect the health of both workers and animals on farms.

The modules are free and easily accessible. For more information, visit the UW Center for One Health Research website.
