Covid19 Coronavirus: Precautions And Care

Medical experts might advice home care if anyone in your family members

Has coronavirus
Was tested for COVID-19 and is waiting for the results
Has flu symptoms (like a fever, body aches, cough, and sore throat)
Anyone of your family who feels sick — even if he don’t know for sure they have contacted with this virus (COVID-19) — should stay home unless they need medical care. This helps to breaks the chain from spreading to other people.

What Should We Do at Home?
The best way to protect others at home, anyone who feels sick in your family should:
As much as possible, keep away from other people in your home.
Must Wear a cloth face covering (or face mask, if you have one) if they must be around other people.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, throw the tissue away, and then wash their hands right away.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
If possible, stay in a bedroom and use a bathroom separate from other people in the home.
Use separate dishes, glasses, cups, and eating utensils and not share these with other household members. After use, run them through the dishwasher or wash with very hot soapy water.
Use separate bedding and towels and not share these with other household members.
Make sure shared spaces in the home have good air flow.
Do not allow any visitors into your home.
All household members should wash their hands well and often. Wash with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Wash the sick person’s clothing, bedding, and towels with detergent on the hottest temperature possible.
Wear gloves when handling their laundry, if possible. Wash your hands well after handling the laundry (even if you wore gloves).
Every day, use a household cleaner or wipe to clean things that get touched a lot. These include doorknobs, light switches, toys, remote controls, sink handles, counters, and phones. Keep a sick child’s toys separate from other toys, if possible.

To protect others in your community:
The person who is sick should stay home unless they need medical consultation.
Other family members also should stay at home.Follow instructions from your doctor, local health care department.
If you must go out side, wear a cloth face covering or face mask and keep at least 6 feet (2 meters) of distance between you and other people.

When Should Call the Doctor
If the person you’re caring for seems to be getting sicker, call your doctor right away. Tell the doctor about their symptoms and whether they’ve been tested for coronavirus (COVID-19).

If they need to go to the doctor:
The person should wear a cloth face covering.
Keep tissues handy in case they need to cough or sneeze.

What Else Should I Know?
If you’re caring for someone with coronavirus or who has coronavirus symptoms, keep taking these precautions until your doctor or local health department say it’s safe to stop doing so.
It can get pretty lonely and boring for kids who are sick and need to stay home. While they’re separated from family, classmates, and friends, kids who feel well enough may want to:
Talk on the phone or do a video call with family and friends.
Text or use other messaging apps to talk with family and friends.
Play online games that let them play with other kids from home.
Do puzzles or Legos. Keep these clean and keep separate from other toys in the house.

Clean items used by the sick person (such as phones and computers) before other family members use them.
