When to get tested for covid19

 

COVID _ 19 is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China. 

For the most up to date information concerning the Covid-19 virus (more specifically, a coronavirus), please visit: 

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has guidance on managing mental health and coping during COVID-19 for children and caregivers.

 

  • The Child Mind Institute has published a resource on how to talk to young people about COVID-19.
     
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) has information on travel, media resources, and other research on COVID-19.
     
  • Anxiety and Depression Association of America Psychologist Jelena Kecmanovic provides some science-based strategies and tips for coping with COVID-19 anxiety. 

We know this situation is challenging. In addition to utilizing these resources, health care experts recommend getting adequate sleep, eating well, and engaging in exercise, among other tips for practicing good self-care.

People who already are managing existing mental health conditions should prioritize self-care during difficult times and should contact their clinicians if they have questions or concerns. To reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Text 741-741 to reach the Crisis Text Line.

Prevention:

CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses.
