@tari4me– Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You must be worried sick about your spouse. I have just had a test done for symptoms and I am also married.
I have a couple of days left to wait. It was a self-test. The CDC has advice on how you can handle this situation. I'm sure that there are many, many people who have been in your situation.

If you test positive do you have people to help care for you?

@merpreb You asked “do you have people to help care for you”. I’ve been worrying about all my single friends in the neighborhood. Can they prepare ahead of time, just in case? I’ve been thinking about a ‘COVID kit’ that might be good to have on hand. Like good cough medicine, Tylenol, a pulse oximeter, a thermometer, etc.
What else would anyone suggest?
