Need to be careful : CORVID 19 is a novel virus and more information is coming in every day. In general the response to a virus is neutralizing antibodies which may be deficient in some one who is immunosupressed. Not all drugs used for autoimmune diseases are immunosuppressive. Some are immunoregulatory. Nevertheless i would take stringent precautions and avoid going outdoors or mingling in the community for now
