While it's undoubtedly important to be supportive during this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does recommend avoiding close contact with people who are sick and distancing yourself from other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is particularly important for people who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease, as well as older adults, who are among the highest-risk groups for contracting COVID-19.
Remember, there are lots of ways you can help, including donating to organizations aiding those who have been hit by the outbreak the hardest.
