Core Tip The risk of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) among surgeons and is unknown. By searching Medline we identified 14 primary studies that provided data on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus infection among surgeons and identified 11 systematic reviews that provided evidence on the role of facemask against respiratory viral infection among health professionals. About 14% of health professionals including surgeons had COVID-19, and facemask was found to be somewhat protective against COVID-19, but the health professionals’ compliance was highly variable ranging from zero to 100%. In line with other guidelines we continue to recommend facemask use among surgeons to prevent COVID-19.
