- Patient Education
To date, no patients of the IMSMP or Tisch MSRCNY have been diagnosed with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Patients with multiple sclerosis are not necessarily at increased risk for the virus.
What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus?
The usual incubation period for COVID-19 is five days, although you may not experience any symptoms at this time. The initial symptoms of the virus include a fever (temperature over 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and a dry cough. After a few days, symptoms begin to include breathing difficulties and general malaise.
Patients with a fever will not be permitted at the Center. If you are experiencing a fever, please call the Front Desk at (212) 265 – 8070 to notify your neurologist and cancel your appointment.
How can I protect myself?
As a Center, we are taking all necessary precautions to provide a clean and safe environment for our patients and staff.
