COVID-19 Pandemic - National Rapid Guidance Documents

This page offers links to a series of six national guidance documents under CRISM/OCRINT. Collectively, the six documents address the urgent needs of people who use substances, service providers, and decision-makers in relation to the COVID‑19 pandemic. 

The guidance provided in these documents is subject to change as new information becomes available and the landscape of the pandemic and public health responses evolve over time. Please check this page often for updates and new resources.
