Alachua County because the first county in the Sunshine State to declare a COVID19 stay-in-place order and it is most likely that other counties and perhaps the entire state will soon follow. The idea of spending most of your time at home for several weeks during the coronavirus pandemic is enough to make you tired of everyone in your household. But if you live with someone who has exhibited abusive behavior, staying home could be more uncomfortable for you—or downright dangerous. Domestic violence support organizations are posting reminders about their hotlines and text support options, acknowledging that being isolated with an abuser can escalate an already tense situation. The National Domestic Violence Hotline can be reached at 1-800-799-7233. You can also visit thehotline.org or text LOVEIS to 22522. Advocates can help you talk through your options and provide resources that can help you make plans to stay safe.
