I guess it depends on where you live. Its not considered an "essential" surgery where I live.

Here, in Ontario, all transplant surgery has been cancelled except for emergencies. I am so sad for all those waiting for a transplant at this time. I am just over a year post transplant.

@rosemary my ERCP was cancelled (just today) due to the halt on elective surgery here in Ontario. My husband left last Saturday for Thailand and I haven't heard from him since Tuesday. Things are heating up here in Canada but they haven't stopped flights into the country from Europe. Almost all the cases here have come from travellers but nothing is being done. I plan to relocate prior to his return so that he can self isolate for two weeks. Schools, libraries all recreational events have of course been cancelled. For us though, this hand washing, non touching, distancing is a way of life anyway. Welcome to our world people!

@rosemary so the surgeon (himself) called me to cancel my ERCP tomorrow morning. They have cancelled all elective surgeries here in Ontario.

I know but he has many stop overs in different countries before arriving and departing Thailand.

There are quite a lot of cases in Thailand. It's not so much the country as the air flight path that takes him through several other countries ie Germany etc.

@contentandwell they're only screening those who have travelled to China.

@contentandwell @rosemarya my husband left today for a three week vacation to Thailand. I don't know how to protect myself if he contracts the virus. I don't really have any place to go.
