CPR guidelines to address patients with COVID-19

"For adults, lay rescuers should perform at least hands-only CPR after recognition of a cardiac arrest event, especially if they are household members and were exposed to the patient at home.

Since defibrillation is not expected to be a highly aerosolizing procedure, lay rescuers should use an automated external defibrillator, if available, to assess and treat patients."
