Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has spread worldwide and has resulted in high mortality, increased pressure on medical systems, and severe global economic losses. Hemodialysis patients may be highly susceptible to infections due to old age, immunocompromised status, preexisting comorbidities, and frequent hospital visits. Moreover, the closed and crowded environment of dialysis rooms increases the risk of cross-infections. The Wuhan Hemodialysis Quality Control Center has accumulated valuable experience in the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic and has normalized management of the epidemic since early 2020. In this review, we garnered experiences and knowledge from China and worldwide to summarize an approach to COVID-19 prevention, control, and management in hemodialysis patients under normalized epidemic conditions.
