Key Findings
· The terms cluster and outbreak both describe the occurrence of new disease cases within a particular location and time period. The number of cases within a cluster are not necessarily greater than what is expected, however in an outbreak the number of cases does exceed the usual norm. · In an outbreak the cases are confirmed to be epidemiologically linked while in a cluster an epidemiological connection is only suspected. · Not all clusters are outbreaks, however each cluster needs to be investigated
· Understanding how to characterize COVID-19 cases based on a suspected or proven epidemiological link can better guide prevention of disease spreading

Key Findings
Significant evidence base demonstrates an increased risk of perioperative mortality in COVID positive surgical patients
Based on previous knowledge of preoperative pulmonary infections, as well as early clinical data, most professional associations recommend a deferral of at least 7 weeks from symptom onset or positive test to elective surgery
New evidence in light of the existing surgical backlogs indicates that those with asymptomatic or mild infections can proceed to minor, low-risk elective surgeries 4 weeks after symptom onset or positive test
Guidelines and frameworks indicate that timelines are only recommendations and individuals need to be assessed objectively for preoperative fitness, that the risks and benefits of both surgery and delay be discussed, and that shared decision making used between multidisciplinary care teams and patients

Key Findings
N95 respirators that have been reprocessed demonstrate acceptable fit and filtration performance under laboratory conditions
Increased use over time both in terms of length of wear and number of donning/doffings increases the likelihood of fit failure
Reprocessing masks does not render them to ‘new’ condition

Key Findings
Screening tools commonly include fever, respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath), and epidemiological risk factors. · The sensitivity and specificity of screening questionnaires depends considerably on the items used in the questionnaire. The limited published literature demonstrates great variability in the performance of different screening tools: sensitivity ranges from 0 – 48.6 – 84.3 – 100%; specificity ranges from 64.8 – 71.3 – 89.6 – 96%). · The standard WHO symptom checklist performs poorly, with a sensitivity of 48.6%, and specificity of 89.6%. As such, half of individuals who have SARS-CoV-2 present at the time of testing will be missed by the symptom questionnaire (being either asymptomatic or presymptomatic). Depending on the population being screened the prevalence of the virus may vary widely. Given the sensitivity and specificity of the WHO symptom checklist in a population with prevalence ranging from 0.1% to 1% to 10% the positive predictive value (PPV) will be poor, range from 0.4% to 4.8% to 35%, respectively. Furthermore, the performance characteristics of the screening questionnaire may be poorer than reported if used in a setting or time of year when other respiratory viruses with similar symptoms are circulating.
