On March 11, 2020, WHO declared the spread of COVID-19 a pandemic and on March 13, 2020, a national emergency was declared in the US in response to the disease.

Much information is available about identification and management of patients with COVID-19 who present to hospitals. Very little has been written about how healthcare providers (including physicians, nurses, and pharmacists) should proceed when a patient comes to a private ambulatory-care setting with
a clinical presentation consistent with COVID-19.

This webcourse, COVID-19 in the Ambulatory Care Setting: A Practical Guide for the Multidisciplinary Team, will provide clinicians in this setting with information on how to prepare for patients who have COVID-19 symptoms, what to do when these patients do present, and what to report to local public-
health authorities. The activity will also help clinicians decide on an appropriate patient disposition, clean and disinfect facilities, and determine if
healthcare providers and staff need to self-quarantine.
