Interim Guidance for Providers: Addressing Needs of People Who Use Alcohol, Tobacco, or Other Drugs Requiring Isolation or Quarantine Related to COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Background: "Novel coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory disease that can spread from person to person. Most people who get the infection have no symptoms or mild symptoms of a cold. Some people have gotten very sick from it and need to be hospitalized - especially people who are older and have chronic medical conditions. The most common signs and symptoms of infection include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscles aches, sore throat, and headache. Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea are less-common symptoms of COVID-19. At present, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 and no treatment after someone has been exposed to COVID-19. The best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to avoid being exposed to the virus."
