Suspension of BinaxNOW testing and updated COVID+ Playbook

Maine EMS has released an Operational Bulletin regarding temporary suspension on the use of Binax NOW tests.  As this also affects the Playbook used by agencies experiencing a COVID outbreak, we have updated the Playbook to version 3.0.  This documents can be reviewed below as well as on the Clinical & Operation Bulletin page, and on the COVID Resource page, under the section titled Personnel Quarantine, Return to Work and other Healthy Resource Documents.
