Here is My Question:
Should I continue to take cellcept or stop because of the virus.
Do not stop any medicine without consulting with the specialist who prescribed it. Doctors constantly balance risks; in this case the risk of staying on cellcept versus the risk of stopping it. I do not even know your neurological diagnosis and risks factors for worsening of this condition, to say nothing about your co-morbid medical conditions and other risks factors for a severe COVID-19 infection. There is no blanket policy on any individual medication plan during this pandemic.
Call your doctor today.
