You can also visit our frequently updated COVID-19 FAQ page for answer and the latest information. Aetna and CVS Health are working with public health experts and organizations, including the CDC, to spread awareness of emergency preparedness efforts. We will get through this. It is important to practice healthy habits by aiming for the recommended eight hours of sleep, drinking plenty of fluids and eating a well-balanced diet. Be calm, take care of yourself and your family, and follow public health guidelines. 

Coping with COVID-19 fears 

 It’s normal to feel worried about safety when facing an unknown threat like the COVID-19 virus. With COVID-19 in the news every day, it’s only natural to have some anxiety. This is especially true since so much about the virus is unknown right now. Be kind to yourself and respect your fears. It may help you to remember other stressful situations you’ve been through before, and how you coped. 

 

It can help to remember: 

• It’s normal to feel anxious about safety for yourself, your family, friends and even strangers. 

• Deep sadness, grief and anger are normal reactions. 

• Owning your feelings can help you cope and stay strong. 

• Focusing on your strengths and abilities can help you deal. 

• It’s healthy to accept help from community programs and resources. 

• Everyone has different ways of coping and meeting their needs. 

 

Staying healthy 

The best advice we have so far includes taking many of the same precautions we take against the flu. These include: 

• Stocking up on cold medicines, pain relievers, a thermometer and tissues. 

• Having broth, soup, non-perishable and comfort foods in the house. 

• Staying away from people who are coughing or showing other signs of illness. 

• Using disinfectants in your house to wipe down kitchen and bathroom counters, sinks and other surfaces all family members share. 

• Washing your hands frequently. 

 

Easing your stress 

Here are some things you can do during a time of public anxiety: 

• Limit the time you spend watching media coverage about coronavirus. 

• Talk with someone about your feelings. 

• Seek help from a counselor who can help you work through your reactions. 

• Eat healthy, get enough rest and exercise, relax and/or meditate. 

• Spend time with family and friends 

Aetna, a CVS Health company, will waive member cost-sharing and co-pays for inpatient hospital admissions related to COVID-19 at all in-network facilities for members of Aetna-insured commercial plan sponsors. This policy is effective immediately for any such admissions through June 1, 2020 and is part of several additional steps to help members access the care that they need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
