COVID-19 Guidelines

  • Key Points

    • COVID-19 responses are rapidly changing and vary considerably with local epidemiology and resources. You can find out about what is happening in other places here.
    • If resources allow, prioritize patients at highest risk of anal cancer risk – many/most will be able to be deferred for at least three months.
    • Assess all patients for COVID-19 risk at time of booking and on day of procedure. HRA only indicated for those with highest risk of anal cancer and low risk of having COVID-19. Consider delaying HRA, even in these individuals, if they fall into any of the highly vulnerable COVID risk groups.
    • If HRA is still indicated, then follow local Infection Control guidelines as a minimum.
