Heart Disease and COVID-19

Back to Home

COVID-19 can strain all of the systems in the body, putting additional stress on your heart. COVID-19 can make it more likely that your heart won’t be able to keep up with the needs of your body. 

What you can do

Ask your doctor about Telehealth visits to manage your condition so that you don’t have to go into the clinic, where you could be more susceptible to getting COVID-19. 

Maintain the medications and treatment plan that you and your doctor created. 

Keep up the healthy habits that your doctor recommends, including healthy eating, exercise, getting enough sleep, and managing stress. 

Stay up-to-date on other vaccinations that can protect you from diseases that stress your heart, including pneumonia and the flu.
