Dear AAMS Community,

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and would like to share some relevant updates and information.

Today we sent a letter to Vice President Pence and Congress asking for regulatory waivers and exemptions and legislative requests that support the critical care transport industry – both air and ground providers. You can view that letter on our website: View Here

COVID-19 VIRTUAL TOWN HALL

We are planning a free virtual town hall for Tuesday, March 24, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm EDT. This event is open to ALL critical care transport providers.

Please complete our interest survey by Monday, March 23, at noon EDT, so we can prepare accordingly.

Attendance is limited due to our technology capacity, so inclusion will be on a first-come first-served basis. An outlook invitation with the zoom information will be sent after the survey deadline. The meeting will be recorded and shared later that week and depending upon interest we may decide to host a second meeting.

COVID-19 LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

The most recent legislative update regarding US response to COVID-19 can be accessed on our website: View Here. We will continue with weekly legislative updates beginning next week, as they are available.

I understand this is a difficult time for everyone as the situation continues to evolve, but I want you all to know that I appreciate the work you are doing on the front lines to provide critical care in your communities. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have information you’d like to share.

Sincerely,
