From Our Federal Partners: HHS Interim Guidance for COVID-19 and Persons with HIV

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently released Interim Guidance for COVID-19 and Persons with HIV. The guidance is intended for health care providers and persons living with HIV in the United States.

The guidance includes the following information:

  • General information that is pertinent to all persons with HIV, including the most current, albeit limited, information on HIV and COVID-19
     
  • Specific guidance for pregnant individuals with HIV and children with HIV
     
  • Actions to take when a person with HIV is exposed to COVID-19, develops symptoms of the illness, or is confirmed to have COVID-19, including cases where hospitalization is required
     
  • Additional guidance for HIV clinicians to enhance care engagement and continuity of antiretroviral therapy

The guidance also includes links to information on COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other organizations.

HOPWA grantees and project sponsors should submit all questions related to COVID-19 to the Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. In Step 2 of the question submission process, select “HOPWA: Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS” from the “My question is related to” drop down list and write “Health Preparedness and Response” in the subject line.
