Hi @claireb, I'd like to add my welcome to @loribmt's. You mention that your husband will be starting with a virtual visit. You might find the advice from fellow members in this discussion to be useful:

– Telemedicine: How to make the most of a virtual doctor visit https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/covid-19-telemedicine-its-a-brave-new-world/

If you scroll to the end of this web article, you'll also find further information about questions to ask and more. This might be a good starting place to read before talking with someone at the American Cancer Society. They will be able to prepare more in-depth questions specific to your husband.

I'll let Lori and @grandpabob share their experiences about precautions he'll have to take because of the compromised immune system and isolation from family. That is tough. But that is a reality of leukemia with or without COVID. Those will be important and wise questions to ask the care team, too.

Thank you, Colleen, for your information. It will definitely be useful. Also, thank you for changing the title of this thread. I wanted to go in and edit it, but didn't know how. This is my first time actually posting something!
