The Children’s Oncology Group has developed a Health Link about COVID-19 for pediatric cancer survivors. Survivors with certain chronic conditions such as lung disease and heart disease or who received treatment that could damage their heart or lungs are at higher risk for complications related to COVID-19.
As a cancer survivor you should take extra precautions:
Follow the principles of social distancing
Practice good hand washing
Take good care of yourself by eating right, getting enough sleep, and reducing stress
Work or take classes from home if possible
Follow the recommendations of national and/or local authorities
Ensure your SurvivorLink health record is up to date with your important health documents, including your survivorship care plan. If you have to go to the hospital, be sure to take your survivorship care plan.
