The survey was distributed via social media in March 2020 and received 561 responses from US #neurologists in practice. While 87% were provided #PPE by their institutions, 45% were asked to reuse PPE more than once.
Practices to limit #COVID19 exposure and advice on #selfquarantine varied widely. 43% of #neurologists with known exposure were advised to continue seeing patients unless/until symptomatic, and only 12% were offered immediate testing.
