It’s normal to feel stressed, sad, or worried about COVID-19, especially if you or your loved one is sick. There are many things you can do to take care of yourself and manage your stress, including staying connected to family and friends, trying relaxation techniques, starting a hobby, and disconnecting from the news. MSK has a variety of resources to help you deal with this difficult situation.
