Abstract: 
The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has had an adverse impact on the health of the worlds’ population. The development of COVID-19 has created the need for athletic trainers to understand and implement infection control guidelines, policies and procedures in the “traditional” interscholastic and intercollegiate athletic training setting. These infection control guidelines, policies and procedures are similar to those used in health care clinical environments and have not been consistently utilized in the traditional setting. Implementation requires development of a “new normal” concept in the “traditional” interscholastic and intercollegiate athletic training setting. This webinar will focus on providing the athletic trainer with the knowledge and resources by which to develop guidelines, policies and procedures required for their specific Athletic Health Care Center.
