Tips for Coping When Quarantined with COVID-19 Family Members   [open pdf - 245KB]

From the Document: "Individuals with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] are generally required to remain quarantined at home. Their family members take on the important role of caring for them, including providing supportive treatments, monitoring for worsening of their condition, preventing the spread of the disease, and at times determining when to end isolation. Family members may feel ill-equipped to properly care for their loved one. In addition, families may be stigmatized for having a member diagnosed with the disease. These responsibilities, the concern about becoming infected, and uncertainty about the patient's recovery may result in elevated distress. Below are strategies to help families cope with these challenges."
