Staying Healthy: HIV & COVID-19

Charles: If you are living with HIV right now, I want you to know that you’re not alone. You have people that are in the public health field right now that are working tirelessly to make sure that we keep you healthy. You need to be focused on your health and also taking your medication once a day, every day.

Michael: Just make sure you’re communicating with your healthcare providers, whether that be a medical provider, the place where you regularly go for HIV testing and STI screenings. Find out how their systems are changing, what resources they have available, if they’re referring to other people, and definitely just making sure that you’re advocating for yourself.

Blossom: It’s very, very crucial that HIV services are kept up, especially during the time when this pandemic is going on. And so I’m really, really glad that those services are still open.
