It is not advisable to go for elective surgery in the present day serinio when the whole atmosphere is infected with covid 19. It will have all medical, social & legal repurcatations. However she can practice some yoga based exercises. Visit you tube N c gupta me and my yoga

Total knee replacement is not an emergency. You can postpone it for a further date and wait for the virus to be controlled. Let's assume the current situation get worse, like in Europe. Your post op rehab might not be satisfactory as you will have limited access to the physiotherapist.
Next Steps
in my opinion wait for a week or two and proceed

I think the consensus is quite clear on the forum Although we have not stopped doing joint replacements, we have been taking extreme care to screen each person who enters the premises of the hospital and we are able to do that as it's not the biggest of the hospitals
Next Steps
Look into the hospital where the surgery is planned the way they are handling the issue
Health Tips
I would still say take a step back as 20 days is a long admission time
