The novel coronavirus disease 2019 first emerged in Wuhan, China, and is now an emerging pandemic globally. This has strained health-care services leading to restrategizing anesthesia care and management of patients. We describe the anesthetic management of a 30-year-old COVID positive, multigravida, with term pregnancy taken up for elective cesarean section under the subarachnoid block in a dedicated operating room earmarked for COVID cases. For such a case, challenges in the modification of standard procedures to minimize exposure of the health-care professionals are delineated.
