ACOG has updated their COVID-19 FAQs for Obstetrician–Gynecologists, Gynecology

"These FAQs are based on expert opinion and intended to supplement guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Practice Advisory with information on how to optimize patient care in the context of COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving situation and ACOG encourages local facilities and systems, with input from their obstetrics and gynecology care professionals, to develop innovative protocols that meet the care needs of their patients while considering CDC guidance, guidance from local and state health departments, local prevalence, community spread, health care personnel availability, access to readily available local resources, geography, and coordination with other centers.

As ACOG members continue providing patient care during this time, we understand that both they and their patients have questions about women's health during the pandemic. These FAQs are developed by several Task Forces, assembled of practicing obstetrician-gynecologists and ACOG members with expertise in obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, gynecology, gynecologic subspecialties, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, infectious disease, hospital systems, telehealth, and ethics, who are on the frontline caring for patients during this pandemic.

This is a rapidly changing landscape, and FAQs will be added or modified on a regular basis as the pandemic evolves and additional information becomes available."
