Infection prevention and control guidance

Public Health England has published updated infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance.

The guidance applies to all healthcare settings and supersedes previous guidance. It takes account of increasing experience and knowledge in managing COVID-19 and is based on the best available global evidence. The guidance has been updated to help you to assess how settings can be classified by risk with appropriate infection prevention and control measures.
