It is important to take good care of your partner if they are infected with COVID-19, not only physically, but also emotionally.
We strongly encourage physical isolation as far as possible if someone is known or suspected to have COVID-19. They must be in their own room, have no physical contact, and only socialise via video, outside or in spaces where there is very good ventilation and hygiene can be maintained, and if they are wearing their masks. This will make your partner feel not only physically isolated but emotionally isolated too. Most of us need a lot of human contact to survive. Here are a few tips:
Also remember that there are different forms of INTIMACY that you can focus on now:
Something to think about: After all of this, we might just have much stronger and deeper relationships as well as the good health to catch up on the sex that we have missed out on!
My final message:PLEASE STAY HOME IF YOU CAN! I am no longer a doctor who saves real lives. I won’t be in the front lines fighting COVID-19 by intubating people. I have however closed my practice and will only do online consultations, to do my part in helping people to rather stay home and not have physical contact with other people unless it is absolutely necessary. My colleagues will however be there, making the difficult decisions about who gets ventilators and who not, about whether they can have contact with their own partners and children and about how far they can push risking their own health. Please stay home to help them.
