How to Help Someone Recover from COVID-19 at Home

April 29, 2020

Many people who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for it will experience mild illness and can recover safely at home.*
 
If someone in your home contracts COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends several steps to support their recovery and maintain a safe and healthy environment, including:
 
  • Tips on how to support basic needs
  • How to spot warning signs
  • Ways to limit contact when you live in the same home
  • Directions for cleaning and disinfecting areas in your home
  • Information about home isolation
 
Your role as a caretaker makes a big difference for the person you're caring for. It also has a significant impact on your community in helping keep other people safe and healthy.  
 
*Older adults and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk of developing more severe illness from COVID-19. People at higher risk should call their doctor as soon as symptoms start.
