Isolation Social Story


This social story provides a visual explanation of what it means to be in isolation if someone has the coronavirus, or COVID-19.

If I get sick I may have to go into isolation.

Isolation is when sick people are kept away from healthy people.

My doctor will tell me if I need to be in isolation.

I may be in isolation at home or in a hospital.

If I am in isolation, I need to stay 6 feet away from people.

I need to cover my coughs and sneezes with a tissue or my elbow.

I need to wash my hands after I cough or sneeze.

People taking care of me might wear masks and gloves to keep them healthy.

Isolation will last until my doctor says I'm not sick anymore.
