Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
This resource, developed by ASERT, provides a checklist of activities that can be done to help maintain your mental health and well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has lasted longer than we thought it would. To help keep people healthy, people are social distancing. This can also make people feel lonely. Being lonely can make it hard to follow your routines and makes holidays or special occasions harder because you’re not seeing the people you celebrate with. The winter can be hard because it gets dark earlier. Taking care of yourself, the people in your life, your pets, and your home can help you feel better. To help boost your well-being, try to do a few of these activities every day.
