The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is responding to frequently asked questions (FAQs) to help sleep clinicians and accredited sleep facilities address the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As much as possible, the AASM also will attempt to address questions of specific relevance to the impact of COVID-19 on the practice of sleep medicine. However, much of the information about COVID-19 that is needed to guide clinical decision-making is still emerging. We will make frequent updates to the page in response to new questions and information.

You can send your sleep-related questions, suggestions and feedback about COVID-19 to the AASM at

Note:  Information for patients and the public is available in our blog post, Coronavirus FAQs: CPAP tips for sleep apnea patients. Patients who have questions about their health or medical condition should contact a local medical provider or request a consultation via telemedicine with a provider who is licensed in your state.
