Coronavirus and celiac disease

We know many of you are worried about the coronavirus and how it affects those with celiac disease. At this time there is no evidence to suggest that someone with celiac disease would be more vulnerable to the coronavirus than the general population. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease and, in and of itself, is not considered an immunocompromising condition. People with celiac disease should follow the guidelines for coronavirus from their health care provider as well as federal, state and local health authorities.
