 PSC and COVID-19

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new virus called SARS-CoV-2. With the number of cases rising, and daily briefings from the Prime Minister, we understand people may be worried or confused about what they need to do, particularly when they live with multiple health conditions.

We've put together a summary which we are updating regularly, covering the most common issues raised by people with PSC about COVID-19.

For the most up-to-date information, please visit your government's website.
