Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

What do Older Adults and People with Disabilities Need to Know about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

 

With many illnesses, older adults and people with disabilities face higher risks of contracting the disease and/or experiencing complications, particularly if they also have chronic medical conditions. Consequently, there often are additional prevention and treatment recommendations for these populations. That currently is not the case for COVID-19.

If specific guidance for older adults and people with disabilities is issued, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) will post it on their page www.acl.gov and share it through the ACL updates email service.  In addition, ACL recommends that everyone follow the guidance issued by state and local health departments, and watch the CDC website for the latest national information. 

 

At this time, CDC recommends that everyone, regardless of age or disability, take the same precautions to avoid illness. These include the following everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory diseases, including colds and flu:

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Staying home when you are sick.

  • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash.

  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Following CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask.

    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

    • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
