Infectious Diseases Overview

MIEMSS is providing these links and documents in an effort to improve knowledge and provide guidance to Maryland EMS providers to protect themselves and provide the best available care to their patients. As the situation evolves there will be many updates and some links may become outdated.  We will post the latest documents/links at the top of the list. Newer links/documents may supersede older information. 

EMS providers should follow operational procedures dictated by their local or commercial EMS program, which implements these directives and guidance. If your local program does not have such operational procedures, then providers should follow the directives and guidance in the State EMS Medical Director’s Memoranda.
