    Good question. I’m pre-transplant as well, and getting close so I’d like to know as well. :)

    Great question! I think so - they'd probably just test you to make sure its not infectious/severe/anything other than a cold. I would imagine it would differ with individual cases though. Best thing to do if you're unsure is check with your team!

    @Jtannen1987 - good question!

    The best answer is, it depends. Rest assured, once you get 'the call', you'll be tested for sure. These days especially, testing for covid-19 is standard protocol at most transplant centers.

    Since you are listed for a transplant, anytime you have any symptoms/side-effects/questions etc - no matter how small/petty it may appear, it's always a good idea to check with the team/doctors/nurse practitioners et. al.

    Best of luck to you!
