The fact of the matter is, even if you’re not showing any symptoms, you can pass this virus on to people who ARE at risk. This not only means the elderly in our community, but people who are have compromised immune systems.

Many IBD patients, for example, are on medications that suppress the immune system, and it’s times like these that we need to band together and think of our neighbours. People who suffer from a chronic underlying conditions chronic respiratory illnesses, diabetes, cancer, etc are also at risk. We must be proactive now and get in front of this pandemic.

Practicing social distancing is the best way possible to keep this virus from spreading and potentially harming more people in our community. If you are not taking immunosuppressive medications and your condition is currently in remission, you are at the same level of risk as the general public, according to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. However, if you are taking an immunosuppressive medication, make sure to continue taking your medications and prioritize social distancing as soon as you can. 

If you are not showing any symptoms, please refrain from any in person visits with a doctor. Healthcare professionals will be working day and night to help the infected, and they must prioritize at risk patients. If we all take care and do our best to protect one another by following the advice of the Public Health Agency of Canada, we have to potential to save countless lives while we wait for a viable vaccine.
