Does autoimmune disease = immunocompromised?
@ddwilliams, I don't know either. This might be a good question for his liver doctor.
By the way – How long has he had PSC? How is he being monitored? Any symptoms?

I asked, but more in reference to travelling for Spring Break (we had plans to take the train from Chicago to DC and NYC). I asked before all of the shutdowns and isolation really started happening. I basically received the response to wash hands, etc., without a real answer to the immunocompromised piece. Now it doesn't really matter as everything is basically at a halt anyway.
He was diagnosed with PSC 6 months ago and is 10 years old, so very early stages. No symptoms, liver values stabilized with vancomycin, bloodwork every 6 months, and annual fibroscan. I'm just being a protective mom and new to this world.
