About Project Firstline

To stop the spread of infectious disease threats—including COVID-19—anyone working in a health care facility needs a foundational knowledge of infection control and must understand and be ready to implement infection control protocols and procedures throughout their work day, including during every patient care activity and health care interaction.

CDC’s Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse health care and public health partners that have come together to make that happen.
