These teams are working to become familiar with the situation across the state so they can begin aiding locations in need. There are two teams assisting long-term care facilities and one team assisting food facility outbreaks. The CDC teams will be onsite in Pennsylvania for two weeks to help in the response using their expertise. These teams will help assess the situation, teach infection control practices, and offer training on personal protective equipment (PPE) and outbreak response at the facilities they visit.
