Strategies for the surveillance of COVID-19
This document proposes an updated strategy for COVID-19 surveillance at national and EU/EEA level that specifically aims to reconcile the data needs for effective pandemic response with what is still feasible in countries and within healthcare systems under siege, while taking into account guidance issued by the World Health Organization.
Conducting in-action and after-action reviews of the public health response to COVID-19
This document aims to support the implementation of after-action reviews (AARs) and in-action reviews (IARs) focused on the public health response to COVID-19.

Projected baselines of COVID-19 in the EU/EEA and the UK for assessing the impact of de-escalation of measures
This report aims to provide a short-term 30-day forecast of the expected number of COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalised cases (including general hospital ward and intensive care unit) under a set of assumptions.
Guidelines for the use of non-pharmaceutical measures to delay and mitigate the impact of 2019-nCoV
This document provides guidance on the application of non-pharmaceutical countermeasures to minimise the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the population. Some of the measures proposed refer specifically to certain phases of the epidemic (containment or mitigation phases), and can be adapted depending on the assessed severity/impact of the infection. Other measures are valid for all phases of an epidemic.
