Make sure you have the following in stock: medical masks, face shield or goggles, disposable surgical gloves, disposable paper towels, tissues, waste container, over-the-counter medication, hand soap and dish soap, alcohol-based sanitizer, and regular household cleaning products and disinfectants. In addition to these, having a thermometer and access to running water is also necessary.
While symptoms are mild, it is better for the patient to stay at home, isolate themselves from other household members, and take note of these basic health protocols while recovering. If the illness gets worse, the next step is to promptly seek medical attention from the nearest health care facility.
