Core Tip In this article, we report our experience in a heavily coronavirus disease 19 affected area. Within our Endoscopy Unit, structural and organizational changes have been required after the spread of the disease to temporarily increase the capacity of the intensive care unit. Moreover, specific procedures concerning the management and paths dedicated to patients have been adopted. Finally, appropriate behavioral strategies have been established for healthcare professionals. The effectiveness of these measures has been certified by the absence of infected personnel.
