Know Your Risk: COVID-19 and Kidney Transplant

For kidney transplant patients:

Transplant patients have an increased risk of contracting COVID-19 due to the immunosuppressive medication required to keep your body from rejecting the transplanted kidney. This medication is critical for the success of your transplant, so do NOT stop taking it. Instead, take steps to limit any potential exposure to the virus. As Ohio begins to reopen, it is critical to continue staying home as much as possible. Take advantage of grocery delivery and pick-up options, or have a friend or relative shop for you and leave the bags at your door. If you are not able to work remotely, your doctor may be able to write a letter to your employer for a leave of absence.
