Coronavirus Statement
At The ALS Association, we continue to monitor the news around COVID-19 and access to COVID-19 vaccines. Our highest priority remains the safety and well-being of people with ALS, their families and caregivers, and our staff.
 
We have created a COVID-19 Vaccine Information hub to capture breaking news and resources to inform your conversations with physicians about the vaccines, their safety and efficacy, and availability.
 
For specific information about symptoms you may be experiencing or questions about personal exposure as someone living with ALS or as a caregiver, please contact your physician directly.
 
We anticipate that for the foreseeable future:
  • The number of new COVID-19 cases will remain high, so it is important to continue physical distancing, wearing masks, and other practices to lower risk of infection for ourselves and our families.
  • Some Association activities will need to be modified or rescheduled to ensure the safety of people with ALS; we will communicate with you directly regarding changes to upcoming plans, so please watch your email. You can always find the latest updates about local activities on our Facebook and Twitter pages, @alsphiladelphia.
