People living with hepatitis B or C who are currently taking treatment should not change or stop their treatment unless advised to do so by their treating doctor.  People should be aware that recent changes restricting prescriptions to a one-month supply of medications means ensuring you plan and avoid missing doses. There is nothing to suggest that the availability of medications used for hepatitis B or C will be reduced due to COVID-19.

Monitoring your health will continue to be important and you should keep seeing your doctor as usual. You should check with your healthcare provider to see what arrangements they are putting in place. There may be telehealth options if you are worried about visiting in person. If you have an appointment with your doctor it is good to consider asking your doctor for a liver health check if you have not had one in the last six months.
