Cancer patients represent a vulnerable cohort during the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic . Oncological societies have generated a plethora of recommendations, but precise instructions about routine oncological procedures remain scarce . Here, we report on local COVID-19 protection measures established in an interdisciplinary approach at a tertiary care center during the first wave of the pandemia in Germany . Following these measures, no additional morbidity or mortality during oncological procedures was observed, and no nosocomial infections were registered . However, Validation of our measures is outstanding and regional SARS-CoV-2 prevalence was low . However, specific oncological measures might be important to ensure optimal oncological results, especially for advanced cancer stages during this and future pandemia . In the future, communication about these measures might be crucial to a cancer patient´s assigned network to reduce the danger of excess mortality within the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
