The WEO COVID-19 Response Taskforce is endeavoring to keep the endoscopy community updated as to advances and guidelines that they may find useful in their practice.

This update includes additional resources and guidance for reopening endoscopy services in areas where the number of new COVID-19 cases has begun to level off rather than continuing in a sharp upward trajectory and, there is easing of restrictions.

To read WEO guidelines from the WEO COVID-19 Response Taskforce, please view here.

Please also refer to the previous WEO advice statement on endoscopy and the COVID-19 pandemic, noting that the present guidance supersedes any differences in recommendations.
