Domestic Violence Concerns

For people dealing with domestic violence, home is not a safe place. Mandates to quarantine may keep you safe from a pandemic, but can be deadly when you live with an abusive partner. Domestic violence spikes during times of stress and economic hardship. Violence can be less predictable and more severe. Read more.

The CDC recommends the following measures to help prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses:

 

  • Avoid close contact with those who are ill
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue into the garbage
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces using household cleaning spray or wipes
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing

Please visit the CDC website for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19.
