COViMS (COVID-19 Infections in MS & Related Diseases) is a joint effort of the National MS Society and the Consortium of MS Centers to capture information on outcomes of people with MS and other CNS demyelinating diseases (Neuromyelitis Optica, or MOG antibody disease) who have developed COVID-19.  
If you have a patient who has highly suspicious or laboratory confirmed COVID19, we ask that you enter those cases into the database.  As the purpose is outcomes of COVID19, Please report only after a minimum of 7 days and sufficient time has passed to observe the disease course through resolution of acute illness or death. View current data.

We are closely watching the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and taking action as we all move through this uncharted territory. We know that the best information for someone living with MS about their unique situation comes from their healthcare providers, and we refer them to you first whenever possible. But we also know that due to the unique circumstances around COVID-19, that may be more difficult.

We are here to partner with you to provide your patients with a trustworthy platform of fact-based information, about COVID19 and multiple sclerosis. The MS Navigator® program will continue without interruption and is an excellent resource for MS-specific support and information, available to everyone affected by MS, nationwide.
