MS DMTs and COVID-19
The National MS Society, based upon advice from our National Medical Advisory Committee, has developed guidance on the use of DMTs during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, we endorse the global advice provided by the MS International Federation (MSIF)– but emphasize that DMT decision making must be individualized and based upon multiple factors. Both the National MS Society DMT guidance and the MSIF global advice are endorsed by the Consortium of MS Centers and the MS Coalition.
Emotional Support During a Global Pandemic
Jon Strum’s Real Talk MS podcast from March 10, 2020 features Dr. Abbey Hughes, psychologist at Johns Hopkins Medicine, who offers people with MS strategies for staying informed and managing anxiety during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The anxiety that comes during times of fear and uncertainty can be overwhelming. Dr. Kevin Alschuler, psychologist at UW Medicine, shares tips to help your patients cope with uncertainty.

National MS Society Programs and Groups
We are closely watching the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and taking action as we all move through this uncharted territory. The most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about in-person gatherings has a significant impact on all we had planned for the next couple months—from fundraising events to programs to advocacy activities. But this will not stop us from being here for people with MS and fueling breakthroughs. 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. Stay tuned for information about exciting virtual opportunities. View the most up-to-date information on programs and events.

The MS Navigator® program will continue without interruption. People living with MS can make online connections for support and contact an MS Navigator for additional resources.
