Take precautions when performing aerosol-generating procedures

Aerosol generating procedures (AGPs) that pose a risk should be performed cautiously and avoided if possible. However, if performed N95 or a higher-level respirator, eye protection, gloves, and a gown should be worn. AGPs should ideally be performed in airborne infection isolation rooms. The number of health care providers present during the procedure should be limited to only those essential for patient care and procedure support.
