The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently pronounced severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) as a serious pandemic. It is, therefore, mandatory for public health authorities to have an environmental health management plan against COVID-19. This chapter summarizes articles and official reports related to environmental health management and prevention policies against COVID-19. Because medical sectors require comprehensive guidelines to follow in such pandemic situations, this chapter highlights the significant factors of COVID-19 transmission in our environment (e.g., air), waste management for COVID-19, and protection and disinfection policies against COVID-19. At present, scientists are still discovering more about COVID-19 and its effect on the environment and the health sector. As such, further research is required to increase knowledge about the structural and pathogenic features of COVID-19 and to find effective treatments to dominate this epidemic. © 2021 Elsevier Inc.
