Weekly poll: Updated CDC draft guidelines

By: June 28th, 2010 Email This Post Print This Post

Last week the CDC released the updated draft guidelines on influenza on the Federal Register, which will be available for public comment until July 22.

The CDC focused on vaccination as a primary prevention method. But hidden further down in the guidelines was something many IPs and safety officers were hopeful for. The CDC reversed it’s decision during the 2009-2010 pandemic for airborne precautions instead of droplet precautions. The new guidelines call for healthcare workers to wear surgical masks instead of N95 respirators, except during aerosol generating procedures.
