Coronavirus (COVID-19) information for patients

If you are a patient with IBD, then the resources on this page will help provide up to date information about coronavirus (COVID-19).

Novel coronavirus (also referred to as COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2) is a virus you can catch from other people. It causes respiratory infections, which can make you cough and have difficulty breathing – but for most people the infection will be mild. For more information about this, as well as what to do if you become unwell, visit nhs.uk/coronavirus.

For the latest government advice and support, visit gov.uk/coronavirus.

If you are unsure of your risk level, you can check using the COVID-19 UK IBD Tool.
