COVID-19 and lymphoma

At Lymphoma Action, we've brought together the latest information about COVID-19 and how it affects people with lymphoma. This information comes from authoritative sources, including the UK government, NICE and the NHS, and is frequently updated to reflect the latest guidance. 

If you have symptoms of lymphoma or signs of infection, please contact your GP surgery or your clinical team. It is important that you don't ignore symptoms that could be serious.
