**UPDATE 28th April 2020**

Dear ISHAA Member,

Please find below further clinical guidance and best practice advice whilst we come to terms with the Covid-19 pandemic. As the the situation evolves this document will be updated to include the latest recommendations from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, the Health Service Executive, the Dept of Health and the Government.

Covid-19 will have far reaching implications for the hearing healthcare sector for some time to come. It is imperative that as clinicians we do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19, through our practices and the community at large. This document serves to guide to you in this effort.
