The Academy is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 across our country, knowing that many of our members and credentialed providers are inevitably on the frontlines of combatting this pandemic while also continuing to take care of current patient loads. Without understanding the full effect COVID-19 may have on people with HIV, it is imperative to take precautions in caring for this population. To that end, we have gathered the following resources of recommendations and special considerations for care and treatment of people with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic.
