The global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), represents an unprecedented challenge to our healthcare system.1 As the number of identified COVID-19 patients exponentially increases, protocols for the safe delivery of care of both patients and providers are vital. This is especially true, given the number of healthcare providers who have contracted the disease. If we fail to protect physicians, nursing staff, and ancillary providers, we will fail to meet the needs of future patients. The successful care of future COVID-19 patients will depend on effective safety and prevention strategies for healthcare workers.
While the data on COVID-19 are rapidly emerging, the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery seeks to provide neurointerventionalists with rapid up-to-date recommendations on the management of stroke thrombectomy in this setting with an emphasis on safety measures for healthcare providers.
