Yes, you can. It’s important to sanitize frequently touched places—we’re talking about doorknobs, countertops, phones, and light switches—on a daily basis.
And it’s also crucial to know what to do if you or someone you live with becomes ill. Call our Coronavirus Hotline, 317-325-COVD (2683), or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The hotline is open 24/7. Clinical personnel from Hancock Health, who can schedule appointments, are monitoring both the hotline and the email address.
Here are a few more tips about what to do at home:
- Keep in touch with family, friends, and neighbors, especially if you or one of them becomes ill. Texting, email, and social media are all good ways to stay connected. Craft a plan about what to do if coronavirus breaks out in your area.
- Ensure your household has a current list of emergency contacts—and Hancock Health is on it.
- Take care of the emotional health of your household members, including children. Remaining calm and reassuring around children is especially important.
- Learn how to care for someone with COVID-19 at home. Choose a room in your house that can be used to separate sick household members from healthy ones and identify a separate bathroom for them to use, if possible.
- Clean the things you touch daily using household cleaners, water, and Environmental Protection Agency-approved products.
