How to Care for Someone at Home During COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
From the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health:
Most people who get sick with COVID-19 will have only mild illness and should recover at home. Mild illness might include fever, cough, mild breathing problems, headache, chills, muscle pain, or sore throat. Care at home can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and help protect people who are at risk for getting seriously ill from COVID-19.
At-home care may not be appropriate for elders and people of any age with certain serious medical conditions like lung disease, hearth disease, or diabetes. These groups are at higher risk for developing more serious effects from COVID-19 and should contact their healthcare provider as soon as symptoms start.
If you are caring for someone at home, prevent the spread of germs, watch them for emergency signs, treat symptoms, and end isolation only after following appropriate guidelines.
