Adults feel lonely and isolated even before the widespread of COVID-19, according to Saint Luke’s Health System psychologist Dr. Kadie Harry. The current situation is taking a toll on everyone’s mental and emotional health. Elders are more at risk of being infected by the virus, that’s why they are strictly prohibited to go out of their house unless needed. Social or physical distancing of at least 6 feet from other people also prevents them from socializing.
