What if I don’t have health insurance?

Are some people at higher risk?
Yes. People with certain underlying health conditions like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and should stay away from groups of people as much as possible. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have on or more of these underlying conditions.
What should I do if I sleep outside?
Keeping your distance from others can be challenging if you sleep outside. The following practices can help reduce the spread in camps and shelters.
- Avoid groups of people and stay at least 6 feet away from others.
- Don’t shake hands. Try other options, such as waving.
- Avoid sharing objects like cell phones, cigarettes, food and drinks.
- Dispose of all waste in bags, separate from the living space.
