COVID EMS Guidance

2019/2020 Continuing Education

In light of federal guidance around public gatherings during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, all Northwestern Medicine EMS programming in McHenry and Western Lake County has been moved to a virtual format. We continue to monitor the situation and CDC guidelines, and will work with all participants to reschedule the programming currently underway. When the situation in our community is more stable, the EMS team will work with participants to coordinate a new schedule. We have begun to offer Virtual Classrooms through Zoom. Please see the below document in regards to rules and guidance for this platform.
