As the number of cases increase so does stress and anxiety. Taking care of yourself, your friends, and your family can help you cope with stress. Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger. If you need help or know someone who needs help contact the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990, or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224. For any medical questions please call your healthcare provider or call 211 for any general COVID-19 questions.

“In order to take care of others, you have to take care of yourself. This is a stressful time for our community. It is more important than ever to take care of not just your physical health, but your mental health as well,” said Kevin Thomas, Health Officer.

Fear and anxiety of a disease can be overwhelming and make an individual feel like they have no control. If an individual has a pre-existing mental condition it is important to continue treatment and contact your healthcare provider if symptoms become worse.

Centers for Disease Control Suggest the Following Actions to Support Yourself:

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.

Sharing and discussing accurate facts about COVID-19, such as one’s actual risk, with people you care about can help make an outbreak less stressful.
