How are you supporting someone who has COVID-19?

Posted by Don Higgins @dsh33782, Mar 18, 2020

Do you know someone personally who has the COVID-19 virus or suspects they may have the virus and are in self-quarantine? How are you supporting them?

@merpreb We live in a tiny house in a small RV park 6 month of the year in South Texas. 90% of our activities take place with the same dozen people in daily contact, so we still socialize at a distance & outdoors with that group. The main activities are all cancelled, and we strictly limit contact with anyone transient or who works outside the park. We actually started social distancing here at least 2 weeks ago even though there wasn't a single case near us until this weekend because we're all well over 60, and several at quite high risk due to lung, heart and immune issues and diabetes.
The big excitement right now is my brother and "the guys" building a new shed.

Hello All – Our daughter reported slight improvement since yesterday – less shortness of breath and slightly less cough. We are hopeful she will weather this! Prayer helps, but we are all doing everything we can.
The virus has arrived in our county, so far only reported by folks who recently traveled from one of the heavily affected areas. Only one or two people here go out to get groceries for the lot of us. It is an exercise in frustration as the shelves are nearly bare. The little Dollar General down the road has been our salvation for basics as they get trucks twice a day and serve several senior communities along our road as well as local folks nearby. When someone finds they have basics, they tell the rest of us right away, like last week when those with CPAP devices were each able to get a gallon of distilled water. Or yesterday when the bread truck arrived. Today we are waiting to see the dairy truck…
Such a new adventure for Americans. Makes me appreciate what my childhood neighbors reported after they fled the Soviet Union with its endless shortages & lines, or what those in New Orleans and Puerto Rico experienced after hurricanes. We can count our blessings because we still have shelter and working utilities.
Stay safe and calm everyone!
Sue
