Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes a special section with articles related to the COVID-19 pandemic and rehabilitation.  The last three months have changed the world in many ways, including the clinical practice, education, and research in PM&R.  Several colleagues from various countries have shared their experiences with us and our readers.  The authors of these contributions have explain and discuss how this pandemic impacted the daily clinical activities in their acute hospitals, the clinical duties of physiatrists, the educational challenges for residents, and the need to develop more quickly alternative approaches, such as telerehabilitation, so that we can continue to take care of persons with disabilities in this situation. It is likely that many patients who may recover from this disease will benefit from rehabilitation.  Our field needs to identify those impairments and implement interventions that will return those who recover to optimal functioning.

For an up to date collection of accepted articles on this topic, please visit our website.

I hope you will stay well and safe! Enjoy!
