  • Key changes to trauma activation and rounding protocols
  • Approaches to reducing risk during intubations and other procedures
  • Strategies for creating staff cohorts and staggering cohort schedules
  • Approaches to social distancing for trauma program staff
  • Changes to regional trauma referral systems
