How to Manage Your Heart Health

In some ways, managing your heart condition during a pandemic stays the same. For example, just as you did before the COVID-19 outbreak, keep up with heart-healthy habits, manage stress and don’t stop any medications without talking with your care team.

But to avoid exposure to COVID-19 or help reduce its spread, you'll need to maintain physical distance and limit contact with others, wear a mask or face covering when in public, and take advantage of telemedicine for virtual visits. 

Also, it's a good idea to have essential supplies, food and medications on hand. Of course, these recommendations may change over time depending on COVID-19 activity. 

Keep reading this section to find more tips on how to stay heart strong and healthy amid COVID-19.
