It is normal to feel anxious, unsettled, distracted, scared and/or overwhelmed by COVID-19. We don’t know where it may spread. However, some people may be more vulnerable if they already have a health or generalized anxiety disorder. In either case, feeling stressed can affect your immune system and increase the risk of getting ill in general. That is why it is important to take steps to manage your anxiety and how you react to the situation, so you can keep yourself as safe as possible.
