Has anyone with MS been exposed to the Coronavirus and subsequent COVID-19 disease? I have - my dad passed away from it on April 1 and his nursing home let me in (gowned, gloved and masked) for end of life visits. I did not contract or have any symptoms of it afterwards but am wondering if anyone else was exposed and diagnosed with the virus? Curious if MS'ers have an immunity

@Jeano4000 I'm sorry for your loss. What a difficult time to lose someone. I haven't seen anything about MS'ers having immunity. Have you read anything about it? There's been so much in the news about people having it and not showing symptoms or some people having it but just not reacting to it. I would think that the fever would maybe trigger a relapse for us, but I'm a not a doctor so I obviously don't know anything for certain. Wishing you the best, stay safe.
