Hello @beast66 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am sorry that you and your mother are going through this in isolation from your dad/her husband and also in isolation from one another. Times like this are generally spent together, pre-pandemic, and it is what our hearts and minds generally crave in times such as these.

That said, I do think following COVID guidelines from the CDC are important to ensure your mom is as safe as possible and so you know her results of the test first.

-CDC Guidelines:

Are you able to find virtual ways to connect while you wait for her test results?

I talk to her several times a day. Each time I talk to her, she seems a little more depressed.
