How to care for someone with COVID-19 at home

Commentary by Chara

With COVID-19 continuing to spread, it is important that you follow certain guidelines to protect yourself and others, particularly if you are caring for someone with COVID-19 at home.
To help the person who is sick, you should follow the doctor’s instructions. Make sure the person who is sick drinks enough fluids and gets plenty of rest. You can help the ill individual in other ways, such as by getting prescriptions filled and with grocery shopping.
In case you see conditions worsening, call 911 or get in touch with the person’s doctor.
To protect yourself, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises limiting contact with the person who is sick. Ideally, the person who is sick should use a separate bedroom and stay isolated. If you share spaces with the person who is sick, however, make sure the room has good airflow and wear a mask when you are in the same space.
In addition, avoid eating in the same space. Wash dishes with soap and gloves, and clean your hands after handling the utensils that the ill person has used. And avoid sharing household items such as silverware, towels and bedding with the person who is sick.
The CDC encourages people who are sick to wear a mask when they are sharing spaces with other people who are not.
It is important that either people who are not sick or the ones who are sick wash their hands, use hand sanitizer and avoid touching their eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
If you as a caregiver start feeling symptoms, it is important you get tested. If necessary, get in touch with your health provider.
Take care – of yourself and whoever needs you to nurse them back to health.


Dado que el COVID-19 continúa propagándose, es importante que siga ciertas pautas para protegerse a sí mismo y a los demás, especialmente si está cuidando a alguien con COVID-19 en casa.
Para ayudar a la persona que está enferma, debe seguir las instrucciones del médico. Asegúrese de que la persona enferma beba suficientes líquidos y descanse lo suficiente. Usted puede ayudar a la persona enferma de otras maneras, por ejemplo, surtiendo recetas y comprando comestibles.
En caso de que vea que las condiciones empeoran, llame al 911 o comuníquese con el médico de la persona.
Para protegerse, los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) recomiendan limitar el contacto con la persona enferma. Idealmente, la persona enferma debería usar una habitación separada y permanecer aislada. Sin embargo, si comparte espacios con la persona que está enferma, asegúrese de que la habitación tenga un buen flujo de aire y use una máscara cuando esté en el mismo espacio.
El CDC alienta a las personas que están enfermas a usar una máscara cuando comparten espacios con otras personas que no lo están.
Es importante que las personas que no están enfermas o las que están enfermas se laven las manos, usen desinfectante para manos y eviten tocarse los ojos, la nariz o la boca con las manos sin lavar.
Si usted, como cuidador, comienza a sentir síntomas, es importante que se haga la prueba. Si es necesario, póngase en contacto con su proveedor de salud.
Cuídese a sí mismo y a quien lo necesite para que lo cuide hasta que recupere la salud.
