Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. Here is what we know about Coronavirus and Multiple Sclerosis.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The health and safety of people with multiple sclerosis and their families is our top priority as we move through the COVID-19 pandemic together. MS doesn’t stop because of this crisis, and neither will we.  

We share the most accurate and reliable guidance possible to help people with MS find their best path forward through this unprecedented crisis. For the safety of the MS community and all our communities—we’ve stopped gathering in person for now. We are finding new and creative ways to make sure everyone involved in the MS movement has a way to connect, to feel supported and informed and to raise funds and awareness—no matter where you are.

Support the Society’s COVID-19 Response

Together, we’ve achieved more breakthroughs for MS than the world has seen for any other neurological disease — and we’re not stopping.

People living with MS need your support now more than ever. Our community may not be able to come together in-person right now, but together, we can close the $60 million fundraising gap and continue to meet the needs of people with MS throughout this crisis and beyond.
