This study explored OT practitioners' experiences during the early stages of the 2019 coronavirus pandemic. Preliminary results showed that participants were working with infected patients, reported increased signs and symptoms of professional burnout, and professional ethics were or may have been compromised. More research is needed to determine if the results of this study are short term or will be an ongoing issue in professional practice as the pandemic progresses.
