Liver Disease and COVID-19

Having chronic liver disease, such as alcohol-related liver disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and especially cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), might increase your risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Actions to take

  • Take your medicines exactly as prescribed.

  • Make sure that you have at least a 30-day supply of your medicines.

  • Call your healthcare provider if you have concerns about your condition or feel sick.
