Are you wondering why, when, and how to test patients for SARS-CoV-2? The newest COVID-19 webinar on AVMA Axon provides the guidance you need.

Join AVMA’s chief veterinary officer, Dr. Gail Golab, for Guidance in testing animals for SARS-CoV-2 to gain a broad understanding of testing for SARS-CoV-2 and how to make the right decisions for individual patients. You’ll learn why routine testing isn’t recommended, which situations may justify testing, procedures to follow if you believe testing is called for, requirements for reporting positive results, and more. 

Dr. Golab also directs attendees to where you can find resources online to help you make these decisions.

Guidance in testing animals for SAR-COV-2 is the newest in an ongoing series of free webinars the AVMA has made available to the profession at no cost, driven by our commitment to provide the resources needed by veterinary professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the other new webinars added recently to the AVMA Axon COVID-19 education series are:

  • Federal student loans 
    The federal COVID-19 relief measures include important provisions affecting federal student loans. Join legislative experts from AVMA and the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) to learn what we know – and what we still need to know – about the impact of the COVID-19 stimulus on student loan borrowers. Produced in conjunction with the Veterinary Debt Initiative, this webinar equips you to better understand how the stimulus measures affect your individual loan portfolio, what benefits may apply to you, and recommended actions you should take.
  • HR guidance for businesses 
    Get practical guidance to help employers maintain legal compliance while managing and mitigating COVID-19 risks in the workplace. Learn about the difference between a furlough and layoff, what OSHA’s General Duty Clause means for businesses and employees, guidance about employee relations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and what questions you can and can’t ask employees in health screenings. 

Coming soon

All webinars in the COVID-19 series on AVMA Axon are free of charge, and we’re continuing to release new titles regularly. Upcoming topics include the paid leave provisions included in COVID-19 relief legislation approved by Congress.
