Staying home due to COVID-19 may be unsafe for people experiencing abuse. Resources are available 24/7 and domestic violence programs across Utah are working tirelessly to help people plan for their safety. Get connected here.

Now is also an important time to actively reach out to friends, family, and community to help survivors and their children who may be feeling afraid and isolated. Simply reaching out can be incredibly helpful to break the isolation pattern. For tips and tools on how family, friends and others can stay connected during this time, call our 24-hour LINKLine: 1-800-897-LINK (5465).

What Programs Can Do Right Now:

  • Reach out to your local health department and make contact with health officials in your county who can provide guidance as the situation changes.
  • Review your agency’s protocols for influenza and/or other infectious disease prevention. Following these guidelines will be helpful to preventing the spread of COVID-19. If you are unable to find supplies of hand sanitizer or other hygiene and cleaning products, contact your local health jurisdiction.
