Staying home until you can no longer spread the COVID-19 virus is important. But staying home is not easy and you might need help. (Understanding isolation and quarantine)
We can help you get support so you can stay home for as long as you need to. Help is available in your community and in your language from organizations you know, including:
- Grocery or medication delivery
- Financial help for rent/mortgage, utilities and other monthly bills
- Culturally specific social and emotional support
- Help navigating care systems
- Help isolating away from your family/household
- Unemployment and sick leave resources
- Mental Health support
Wraparound support may be available if you live in Multnomah County, are experiencing financial hardship because of isolation or quarantine and
- have tested positive for COVID-19 (with or without symptoms), or
- are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, or
- were in close contact with someone with COVID-19 and live or work in healthcare or congregate settings such as shelters, residential care, assisted living.
How to get services
