In an effort to convey that most people with COVID-19 have mild illness, I think we overlook that probably all of us have a loved one with a health condition at higher risk. We can all do extra to help keep those people healthy. 1/

Ask if they want to cut down on visiting public spaces, and how you can help. Maybe pick up groceries so they don’t have to go out or give them a pass on attending weekly family dinner. Definitely don’t visit if you are sick. 2/

If they live with you, wash your hands every time you come in from outside. Have a plan for minimizing transmission at home if someone isn’t feeling well. CDC has advice on that
