HANDWASHING INFORMATION 


GUIDANCE AND RESOURCES
  • Cloth Face Mask Guidance: On April 3, the CDC recommended that the general public use simple cloth face coverings/masks to slow the spread of the virus. The CDC further stated that surgical masks and N-95 respirators should be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.
  • Deaf/Hard of Hearing Communication Card: LDH created a communication card for patients who are deaf or hard of hearing to better communicate their needs with providers.


MENTAL HEALTH

Crisis Text Line: The State of Louisiana has activated a Crisis Text Line to provide free, confidential, 24/7 support for people in crisis. All Louisianians can get connected by texting REACHOUT (all caps together) to 741741 to reach a trained crisis counselor who will identify coping strategies and use active listening techniques. This support is being provided by the State of Louisiana’s Crisis Counseling Program for COVID-19.


PRESCRIPTION ASSISTANCE

Co-Pay Program for Insulin: On April 7, Lilly has introduced the Lilly Insulin Value Program, allowing anyone with commercial insurance and those without insurance to fill their monthly prescription of Lilly insulin for $35.
