COVID-19 disease was first reported in Wuhan city of China, since then this is spreading with alarming speed and had already affected more than 213 countries around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a global impact on all sectors of public health and hospital services. Naturally, urology services have been affected too with several patients, suffering from urological malignancies and renal stone disease, left to their fate. Present records hint towards this pandemic continuing at least till the end of this year and it is only prudent that we come up with strategies to re-initiate urological services in a phased and a safe manner to tackle both, the urological diseases and the COVID-19 infection. This review aims at providing recommendations for resumption of urological services in a phased manner, based on the available evidences in literature.
