In case of symptoms, don’t panic. Discuss with the family compassionately, and assure them of help and give necessary assistance. Teach your house help about the virus and check with your local authorities/RWA if help is allowed, and if it is, ask him/her to sanitise properly before entering the house. Watchmen may be instructed to keep a log of visitors and their phone numbers.
