There is currently no evidence that people living with HIV are at greater risk of acquiring COVID-19 than the general population.

If you are living with HIV and have an undetectable viral load and a good CD4 count (i.e. >400) then you should not be at any greater risk. If you are living with HIV and have a low CD4 count and a detectable viral load then it is important to take additional precautions such as avoiding situations where you might get exposed to the virus as it becomes more widespread. If you feel that you either have COVID-19 or have been exposed then it is important to follow the latest Government/NHS advice.
