COVID-19 Guidance for High Risk Individuals

We here at ADH want to keep you informed regarding coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Specifically, we want to inform you about considerations for high risk individuals.

Older adults and those with serious chronic medical conditions are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. Older adults, and those with serious chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease tend to have lower immunity and can see worsening of their health condition. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends some important measures these individuals can take to reduce the risk of getting sick with the disease, as listed below.

The Arkansas Department of Health is also working diligently with health care providers across the state to educate and inform them about the needs of patients at high risk and how to address them.
