All people, and especially people living with HIV, other chronic conditions, and LGBTQIA+ people, should be especially vigilant and practice good hygiene and social distancing. This means staying home, working from home if possible for the next several weeks or months, and only going outside for essential services such as accessing health care or medications, and food shopping. Outdoor exercise, such as walking or bicycling, is good for physical and mental health. Close contact with other individuals, or allowing children to play on playground equipment or with other children, should be avoided.

This report provides information regarding risk, precautions, and resources to assist those living with HIV and LGBTQIA+ people.
