Frequently Asked Questions

Q: As social isolation increases, often anxiety increases, as well. What are some various ways to cope with the added stress of COVID-19?

A: The COVID-19 pandemic brings added stress as social isolation happens and concerns grow. It’s completely normal and understandable to be feeling anxious during this time, but remember that you are not alone. Now, more than ever, we are seeing communities come together in this time of physical distance.

While we may not always be able to be in close proximity to one another, we are still able to communicate. Take some time out of your day to call a friend or family member, or send a message to someone you haven’t talked to in awhile.

There’s a lot being talked about in the news and on social media about the current situation. It’s important to keep up with new information and regulations, but it can be overwhelming at times. Every so often, step back and take a break – read a book, play a game with your family or do an at-home workout. It’s also important to get outside if you can, take a walk in your neighborhood or through a local park to get some fresh air.

Want some additional stress management tactics? Check out some suggestions from the CDC here.
