Coronavirus and MND

We are aware that the situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic may be causing people affected by motor neurone disease (MND) concern.

If you are living with MND or caring for someone with MND please discuss any specific concerns you have with your health and social care team. They will be able to give you advice and information which takes into account your specific circumstances.

Having taken advice from clinical experts, with experience in neurological conditions, we have provided answers below to common questions. As COVID-19 is a new virus, facts and guidance are still emerging and changing - we will continue to update this content as we find out more.

We are extremely concerned to see that people with MND have not been included in the Government’s list of extremely vulnerable persons in their guidance on shielding and protecting vulnerable persons from COVID-19. However, people living with MND can self-register as extremely vulnerable
