Position Statement on Covid-19 in relation to CPR in community settings
On the 22nd March 2020, The Resuscitation Council of the United Kingdom, published a statement on the protocols to be followed during the Covid-19 Pandemic for laypeople. Those laypeople and first responders with a duty of care (workplace first-aiders, sports coaches etc.) that may include CPR should be guided by their employer’s advice. Those laypeople will include supermarket first aiders, HGV drivers, petrol station forecourt staff, postal delivery staff, the self employed and many more supporting the national effort in the coming months.
Please take the time to read the statement and watch the film on how to protect yourself when performing CPR in this pandemic.
