Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Project Firstline aims to stop the spread of infectious disease threats—including COVID-19—by offering free learning opportunities to frontline workers in the healthcare and environmental services fields.

Created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Project Firstline’s materials provide foundational knowledge of infection control so that your staff can implement preventive protocols and procedures throughout their workday.
