Even with the North Carolina Stay at Home order you can leave your home to access safety resources.
Your safety is essential and there are resources available to help.
Have a plan before the crisis. Most places are closed, know what public places are open in your area. Use a work reason or essential errand (ex. grocery shopping or picking up prescriptions) to leave the home, if needed.
Pay attention to your abuser’s daily routine.
Be aware of your surroundings. If an argument begins to escalate while at home, try to move into the bedroom or living room.
Avoid wearing items around neck that can potentially be used to strangle you.
Check – in daily with a neighbor or family member that you trust. Develop a code word or signal when you need help.
Gather essential items that you may need if you must leave your home quickly. (ex. Carry your ID., extra set of keys & any Credit Cards)
