Since the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak was declared a public health emergency by United States authorities in January 2020, ASTHO has been working with our members, federal agencies, and association partners to ensure state and territorial agencies have the resources and information they need to effectively respond to cases in their jurisdictions. 

ASTHO’s Incident Command Structure (ICS) has been elevated to a Level 4, its highest level, in order to offer further support to the state and territorial health officials and their agencies as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are ASTHO-produced resources to assist in those efforts. For additional resources or to learn more about ASTHO’s role in the COVID-19 response, please contact ASTHO's preparedness team.
