Asthma and COVID-19

Back to Home

Both asthma and COVID-19 can harm your lungs. If you have asthma and get ill with COVID-19, it could lead to life-threatening lung conditions. 

What you can do 

If you have one, follow your Asthma Action Plan

Take your medications as directed. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist to be sure you have an emergency supply of prescription medications. 

Stop smoking and using e-cigarettes, which can cause lung damage. 

Quitting tobacco use can help you improve your health. People with chronic diseases who use tobacco are most likely to have life-threatening health issues. If you use tobacco, make the commitment today to quit. Call the free quitline today to get started at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669).
