Helpline: Coronavirus Support

Coronavirus Risk and Symptoms
The novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has killed tens of thousands of people across the world. This contagious disease affects different people in different ways. Individuals with a weak or compromised immune system and underlying medical conditions are at higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms and life-threatening risks. Since coronavirus is spread across the world, the best way to prevent getting infected is to stay at home and continuously wash your hands with soap and water. Also, avoid contact with a person having the disease.

If you get symptoms like coughing or sneezing, high temperature, body ache, and shortness of breath, be sure to maintain social distancing and call the paramedics or public health authorities for assistance. It is a good idea to seek online support from groups like ExtendaTouch. You can ask our helpline members about their experience with coronavirus, the symptoms, and treatment. COVID-19 is a severe infectious disease that can exhaust you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Our members can provide you emotional support until you get treatment.

Coronavirus Helpline
Coronavirus disease primarily spreads through cough droplets. You may contract it when you come in contact with an infected person. It is crucial, therefore, to avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of the infection. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth without washing your hands with soap and water first.

It is challenging to diagnose coronavirus without a test. The disease starts with mild symptoms and progressively becomes severe during the first 14 days of getting infected. If you think you have symptoms of the infection or are at risk of getting infected, ExtendaTouch's coronavirus helpline is here to help you. You can use our hotline to get support from people who relate. Other individuals in our group can provide you helpful information and emotional support.

Hello everyone! My name is Rebekah and I live and work in central Georgia. I have worked at a skilled-care nursing facility for the last 9+ years and have seen first hand how much of an impact COVID-19 has had on our resident population. Learning to deal with the isolation that has resulted from COVID-19 has been a challenge but we have developed some strategies to help the residents overcome certain challenges. Please reach out if you have any questions regarding COVID-19 and I would be more than happy to help you in any way that I can. Rebekah K.

Self-isolation is something that can be either very hard or easy depending on the person. Many of my friends that have had difficulty being isolated because of their home environment or even their mental health. I can offer help and tactics that could possibly make it easier to spend time with yourself.

Self Isolating is something that I've been doing before COVID-19 in separate time periods. It's easier for some than others, so if you to chat about it then I am here.

Since this virus has run rampant, i haven't been able to keep up with my fitness like i use to. Trying to work out at home is not as exciting for me as being in a gym but being in a gym puts me at risk.
