The world has changed in recent months, now life go around the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, which translates all into uncertainty and fear. At the Mexican Association of General Surgery we are concerned with safeguarding the integrity and health of our patients and also the health of professionals and associates. What was previously handled as patient safety now also includes safety for healthcare professionals. The main health systems in the world have been overwhelmed when doctors and nurses become infected or died. Surgeons are going to find ourselves squarely in the problem since we have to continue taking care of the lives of our patients, as well as the need to carry out emergency interventions and solve oncologic pathology. So, we make recommendations for emergency procedures, both surgical and endoscopic, use of personal protective equipment, advice for laparoscopic surgery with or without COVID-19.

Palabras llave : SARS-CoV-2; COVID-19; surgery; personal protective equipment; laparoscopy.
