Viral infections can be a cause of CNS infection, causing mental and neurological symptoms. Even under normal conditions, good mental health is of paramount importance to the functioning of society. Healthcare workers are critical to the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, but may have to leave work if their mental health is affected.
