COVID-19 Provider Resources


Welcome to the UAB Medicine COVID-19 provider resources site. Clinical and administrative teams across UAB Medicine developed policies and protocols in response to the outbreak in Alabama. Most of these documents were completed by Tuesday, March 10, 2020, and are undergoing frequent revisions as the COVID-19 situation evolves. When using these documents, we caution you to be mindful of the date the document was produced and to check it against current knowledge and evolving clinical standards.

Since the outbreak began, our local and national colleagues reached out to us for assistance as they began seeing cases. By sharing our knowledge and expertise, we hope we can help your teams and facilities operate more smoothly by spending more time providing care and less time typing.
