The American Heart Association has announced new guidelines for emergency personnel when it comes to CPR during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The main idea is to limit the amount of people on scene at any given time when responding to a cardiac arrest call.

For bystanders, the rules don't change, especially if you live in the same household as someone who needs CPR.
