Dear Coronavirus (COVID-19): What Happens If I Get Sick & Can't Leave My House?,

We understand your concern and want to assure you that is a common one. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many states are under a stay at home order.  However, individuals can go out to get fresh air, get groceries, medicine or other essentials.

Even though many doctors’ offices had to close, many are using something called telemedicine or telehealth services. If you do get sick, you call your doctor and they can help you via phone, skype, or Facetime. This will allow the doctor to exam you, diagnose and treat common illnesses that may arise without you having to go to the doctor’s office.

For more information, the CDC helps explain things you and your family can do to help prevent getting sick.

We hope this helps!
