Furthermore, if more than one person at home has symptoms, self-isolate for 14 days from the day the first person started having symptoms.
Should you still worry about catching COVID-19 if you are under the age of 65?
According to Harvard Health, though people younger than 65 are much less likely to die from COVID-19, they can get sick enough from the disease to require hospitalisation.
According to a report published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) in late March, nearly 40 percent of people hospitalised for COVID-19 between mid-February and mid-March were between the ages of 20 and 54.
Drilling further down by age, MMWR reported that 20 percent of hospitalised patients and 12 percent of COVID-19 patients in ICUs were between the ages of 20 and 44.
