09 Mar What People With HIV Need to Know About the New Coronavirus
Compared with the general population, people with compromised immunity are at higher risk of contracting the new coronavirus and developing more serious COVID-19 illness. The HIV population is aging, and nearly half are over 50. Those with low CD4 T-cell counts, indicating advanced immune suppression, are at greatest risk. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and plan on visiting the Co-OP or any of our organizations, as a courtesy to our vulnerable clientele, please reschedule your visit for a later time. If you are living with HIV and have questions about COVID-19, please call your provider or call the Oklahoma COVID-19 Call Center: 877-215-8336.
New research is emerging about how the respiratory virus spreads and how people can protect themselves and others.
