My brother has diagnosed CLL and works in a factory setting. Should he continue working in view of COVID-19?
We can’t answer without knowing the specifics, but generally we advise CLL patients to avoid even small crowds. So unless your brother works essential alone and can stay 6’ away from his co-workers and follow all the other personal hygiene guidelines, I would play it safe. We have posted our official statement on work and travel for CLL patients during the pandemic.
Remember that we cannot give medical advice and any suggestions should be reviewed with your treating doctors.
