CDC also updates infection control guidance...

I like the new WHO interim guidance that Mike points to below--clear, concise, and resolves the confusion I have referred to in the prior interim guidance from CDC.  CDC has now updated their guidance as well, here.  There is no longer a reference to negative pressure rooms being preferred for S-OIV patients, except during aerosol generating procedures.  The guidance is still more complicated than that of the WHO (CDC recommends standard + contact + eye protection + N95 masks for room entry).  The major difference from WHO guidance is in the requirement for N95 masks for room entry--otherwise it amounts to droplet + contact precautions.
