至准父母、代母、捐赠者及第三方辅助生殖机构及诊所有关新冠病毒(COVID-19)之信息

国际辅助生执法集团至准父母、代母、捐赠者及第三方辅助生殖机构及诊所的信

关于新冠病毒(COVID-19)传播的几点建议

随着新冠病毒(COVID-19)遍及全球和全美,我们的专业社群和决策者,准父母,捐赠者,代母,第三方辅助生殖机构以及公众都在寻求如何让准父母根据与COVID-19相关的旅行禁令和其他公共卫生的建议进行不育治疗或继续计划进行不育治疗。

进行辅助生殖技术工作本身是具有压力和情感挑战性的,同时也需要广泛的计划,医疗检查以及大量的时间和金钱支出。对于代孕者,捐赠者和准父母而言,这一疫情在他们生命中最重要的时刻之一增加了许多不知数和担忧的另一要素。由于清晰,准确和及时的信息是帮助保护自己和客户的最佳工具之一,因此,我们特此撰写分享当前最新信息。

目前,关于COVID-19对生殖和妊娠的影响知之甚少。有关病毒,症状,治疗及其对辅助生殖和妊娠的影响,请咨询您的主治医生和IVF医生,或访问美国生殖医学学会网站:这里 .

您可能还需要每天查看美国疾病控制与预防中心(CDC)提供的旅行指南,因为预计该指南会经常更改。(https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html)

我们鼓励每人遵守各州和本地卫生部门的指示,并及时了解CDC和美国食品和药物管理局(FDA)网站发布的有关COVID-19大流行病发展趋势的最新指南和更新。

有关其他信息,请访问:

COVID-19的出行限制和隔离期可能会影响进行代孕工作的准父母在新生儿出生时的及时抵达。因此,我们强烈建议所有准父母,以及法律专业人士,其第三方辅助生殖机构立即采取必要步骤,找出可能受到影响的家庭并提早计划。

同样的限制可能会导致代母和捐赠者体检及医疗周期的延迟。

一些联邦、州政府和当地政府所颁布的旅行限制也许会针对在疫情区的公民的直系亲属设有例外。同样,美国总统执行令(更新于3月11日, 2020年)声明旅行限制不适用于在海外的美国公民或绿卡拥有者的直系亲属(父母、法律监护人、兄弟姐妹)。因此,IFLG 将很乐意为客户起草一份说明信,来解释差旅的必要性,例如准父母需要来美国接出生的宝宝。然而,请注意,本说明信无法保证能让客户进行差旅,因为总统行政令和其他政府行政令也许会在不通知群众的情况下进行更改。

准父母还应该进行安排必要的旅行规划。

准父母的备案还包括: 确立临时、备选监护人及/或医疗授权书来授权其他负责人的成人来在准父母无法差旅的情况下来照看宝宝。强联建议准父母与他们任命的监护人确认,该监护人已准备好,有能力,并且愿意来照看宝宝(且该监护人不受差旅禁令的影响)。如果准父母还没有准备这份文件,或者如果该文件已经被签署但需要被更新(包括原被选监护人不再有效)请与IFLG 联系来获取本服务。

保护您自己与他人

与此同时,请自觉保护自己和他人。请寻求医疗建议来知晓如何保护您自己和家人来避免受病毒的感染。以下是疾病控制中心的网站:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html.

对于已经收病毒感染的人士,病症可以温和或者严峻。感染的症状包括:发烧,咳嗽,呼吸苦难。本病毒已经导致有肺炎的病患出现了一些病症和死亡。严重疾病的风险因素未确定,虽然年长者及各年龄的严重慢性病人群有额外的风险。

疾病控制中心推荐避免不必要的差旅。

如果您必须差旅:

  • 避免和生病人士接触
  • 在没洗手的情况下避免接触自己的眼睛,鼻子,和嘴
  • 经常用洗手液及清水洗手,每次洗手至少20秒。如果没有洗手液和清水,使用含至少60% 酒精的免洗洗手液。
    • 在如厕后、吃饭前,打喷嚏后,吸鼻涕后洗手是格外重要的。

如果在过去14天内您在新冠病毒高危地区逗留过:

  • 在家独自隔离14天,检测自己的健康,与社会隔离。社会隔离意味着不去人多地方,避免与他人聚集,与他人距离至少6尺或2米)。
  • 如果您发烧(体温高于38度),咳嗽,有呼吸困难:
    • 寻求医疗帮助。在去医院或急诊室前打电话通知对方。
    • 将近期的差旅行程和病症告诉医生。
    • 与他人避免接触。
  • 在生病期间请勿差旅。
  • 在打喷嚏或擦鼻涕时请用纸巾盖住嘴巴。
  • 经常用洗手液及清水洗手,每次洗手至少20秒。如果没有洗手液和清水,使用含至少60% 酒精的免洗洗手液。
