COVID-19 and living with HIV

If I Have HIV, Am I at Higher Risk of COVID-19?

At the present time, we have no specific information about the risk of COVID-19 in people with HIV.

Older adults and people of any age who have a serious underlying medical condition might be at higher risk for severe illness, including people who are immunocompromised. The risk for people with HIV getting very sick is greatest in:

  • People with a low CD4 cell count, and

  • People not on HIV treatment (antiretroviral therapy or ART).

People with HIV can also be at increased risk of getting very sick with COVID-19 based on their age and other medical conditions.

Continue taking your HIV medicine, follow the advice of your health care provider, and follow the coronavirus.gov guidance to keep yourself and others safe from COVID-19.
