Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM)
On March 4, 2020, the CNT Committee of the CCAOM issued a Clinic Infection Control Advisory to serve as a guide for acupuncturists in making an assessment to close their practices. In many localities in the United States, Stay-at-Home Orders were issued by state or local public health departments or governor offices. This advisory provides an update with best practice guidelines for opening an acupuncture office. Protocols for prevention of infection are detailed in the 7th Edition of the Clean Needle Technique Manual. Because of the asymptomatic shedding of SARS-CoV-2 virus, these precautions are considered universal and should become normalized clinic procedures.
