Letter from Dr. Lieberman Concerning Covid-19

Hi Rett families,
Boston Children’s Hospital is continually re-assessing the situation and providing updates. What I gather is that children are generally at lower risk of becoming infected or sick from the virus

Girls and women with Rett syndrome are not generally immunocompromised, but some do have more frequent pulmonary infections, especially those who are not ambulatory, so those individuals would be at slightly higher risk. Your primary care provider is a good source of
information in your area and should be the one to help get with appropriate testing if COVID19 is suspected.
