Editor’s Note 3/11: The following is an an announcement from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention about an update to its upcoming webinar on care for pregnant women during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dear Colleagues,

Please note that tomorrow, Thursday, March 12, 2020 from 2:00 P.M. – 3:00P.M. (Eastern Time) there will be a Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) call where presenters will focus on current information about COVID-19 as it relates to pregnant women. Topics will include infection prevention and control measures in inpatient obstetric healthcare settings (CDC’s Interim Considerations for Infection Prevention and Control of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Inpatient Obstetric Healthcare Settings) and resources available to care for pediatric patients.

Advanced registration is not required for this call but due to the high demand anticipated for this COCA call, they are asking participants to access it in a group format, if possible, to allow for the maximum number of people to participate. If you are unable to attend this call, the recording of this webinar will be posted a few hours after the live event.

Please see link below for information on how to access the call:
