From the Document: "As the number of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] cases rises, hospitalizations will also increase. These hospitalizations can be extremely challenging not only for patients, but also for families who might experience distress due to uncertainty about a loved one's recovery, and also due to personal risk of contracting the disease. Additionally, family members may not be permitted to visit their loved ones in the hospital because of potential contagion, which creates difficult separations for everyone. Families may also feel stigmatized by others in their community for having a relative with the disease. Given those challenges, several strategies are suggested to help families cope while their relatives are hospitalized."
