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 the pandemic.

ASTHO's incident command structure has been activated to support state and territorial health officials and their agencies. Below are frequently used COVID-19 resources produced by ASTHO. For additional resources or to learn more about ASTHO’s role in the COVID-19 response, please contact ASTHO's response team.
