(WNCN) — The American Cancer Society program that helps to transport cancer patients to and from their appointments is being discontinued due to coronavirus.
The program is necessary for cancer patients, but are at high-risk for contracting COVID-19.
The ruling takes effect on March 25. Officials say they will continue to monitor the situation and will reactivate the program “as soon as possible”.
“Please know that your safety, and that of our patients and staff comes first. We are rapidly adapting to the fluid nature of the coronavirus. This includes coordinated operational planning, temporary process changes, and changes to events and patient programs,” ACS said in a release.
