NORFOLK, Va. — The coronavirus continues to bring concerns about staying home sick and for how long.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says some people who are sick should practice self-isolation. This means stay home until you get better.
Many of the coronavirus cases have involved self-quarantine. This is when a person must stay at home for 14 days. The length of time is to see if they get the virus or a variation of sickness.
The Department of Homeland Security recommends you have a two-week supply of food, water, and medicine. That includes prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
The CDC advises people to try and say in one room, disinfect surfaces, doorknobs, and tables. Also, keep a distance away from other family or friends in the house.
The World Health Organization also encourages practicing Social Distancing. This is a recommendation that says for a person to be three feet from another person who is coughing or sneezing.
