With the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continuing to rise across the country and the globe, kidney patients, transplant recipients, and living donors may be wondering what steps they can take to be prepared and to try to stay well. We’ve put together a list of resources that you can consult to prepare and stay up to date on the COVID-19 situation. If you have questions, you should reach out to your transplant or dialysis center. Also, many providers are offering virtual or telehealth check-ins to help limit unnecessary potential exposures, so be sure to ask about this option if you are considering a visit to your provider soon.

From all of us at the Transplant Research and Education Center, we wish you good health.
