The increased risk faced by otorhinolaryngologists during coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) is due to high concentration of viral particles in the upper aerodigestive tract. There have been multiple recommendations and reviews for COVID-19 pandemic among the otolaryngologists for different regions of the world, but it is more of lessons learnt than definitive evidence due to lack of any study on the healthcare worker. Therefore, we must learn from each other's prospective so as to change lessons into practice and time testing of all these might bring out the most applicable standard of care. This study focuses on the changes in the operation theater (OT), outpatient department (OPD), emergency, and other routine services in the Otorhinolaryngology department of PGIMER which caters to a majority of North Indian population.
