Helping Someone Who Is Isolated or Quarantined with COVID-19

Information from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) 

Do you have family, friends, neighbors, or community members who are isolated or quarantined due to COVID-19? The Ohio Department of Health has tips for supporting our loved ones and neighbors through their difficult time: 

  • Call, text, or video chat. This allows our friends and neighbors to keep human contact while still safely practicing social distancing. 

  • Drop off food or drinks at their door. Reach out to see what they need and drop it off on their doorstep.  

  • Offer to handle errands for them. You can handle yard work, take their trash and recycling to the curb, or deliver their mail to their door. You can also help in stocking up on essential items. Don’t forget their pets – who also need food, treats, and indoor pads! 

It’s important to put yourself in their shoes during these difficult periods. What would your life look like? How would you want others to treat you, and what help would you need? Consider ways you can support your fellow community members as we all navigate the COVID-19 situation.
