How to help a person having a manic+paranoid episode?

A close friend is having a very paranoid episode -- hasn't eaten, hasn't slept -- and is currently in stay-at-home mode, alone. The people who live closest to them are wrapped up in the paranoid conspiracy thoughts in a way that makes me think it would not be helpful for them to check up on this person. They also live in a city with a very high prevalence of CV19. As far as I know this is the first time this kind of episode has happened. Does anybody have any advice on how to help? Resources?
