Many people with neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s, epilepsy, dementia and multiple sclerosis, have reason to be concerned about the COVID-19 outbreak. That’s why it is critical to follow health officials’ guidelines — including social distancing, washing hands frequently, isolating or even quarantining at home — and to take additional steps to ensure safety from this unprecedented virus. One of those extra steps entails self-education. As such, we have curated some information, below, from reliable sources about COVID-19 and specific neurological conditions.
Above all, please check in with your neurologist (which you may now do over a video-enabled phone, tablet, laptop or computer here at Neurology Associates) with any concerns. We want all our patients to stay as safe and healthy as possible during this global event.
