I am in self isolation. Like many over the last few weeks, I have returned home under requirements I not mix with others as I may have been exposed to the COVID19 virus. it can take up to two weeks for symptoms of COVID-19 to appear — although usually they show after five days.
Flying Home….realising I may be contagious
For an extrovert, its a nightmare. Although the reality is that much I would normally go to is closed anyway!
If you are sharing your home with others, you should stay in a different room from other people or be separated as much as possible.
Wear a surgical mask when you are in the same room as another person. When in same room, try and be 1.5 metres apart (note some people say 1.5 and others 2)
Use a separate bathroom, if available. Wipe down everything you touch that others will share. Alcohol-based products have been found to be effective at removing virus from surfaces.
Do not share own crockery or cutlery.
Make sure that you do not share a room with people who are at risk of severe disease, such as elderly people and those who have heart, lung or kidney conditions, and diabetes.
Visitors who do not have an essential need to be in the home should not visit while you are isolating. Schedule some “virtual coffees” with friends and colleagues.
Now that we are stuck at home, it is important to create a schedule for yourself and your family. Set goals. If you are working, structure your day around blocks of work time or goals. If you are not working. time can disappear in social media or Netflix binges. This is a great time to do all those jobs you have been wanting to do.
When in home isolation, you should monitor yourself for symptoms. Watch for:
If you or someone else in home isolation develops severe symptoms and it is a medical emergency (e.g. shortness of breath at rest or difficulty breathing) you should phone for an ambulance. Tell the ambulance staff that you are in home isolation for COVID-19.
If the symptoms are less serious you should call your doctor or health provider. Wear a mask to any medical appointments
One of the biggest complaints humanity has is that they are too busy. Suddenly, we have an opportunity to have some reflection time. Use this time to get to know yourself and your family. We can either waste this period of social isolation and be annoyed, frustrated or depressed, or we can choose to makeit the best it can be.
