I have covid at the moment and whilst I'm not holed up in my bedroom, I'm staying away from my family more than usual (teenagers in their rooms most of the time anyway!) as I would if I had a stomach bug or flu. I would doubt I'm very contagious now - day 7 and the faintest of faint lines on a test. I look after MIL part of the time, hence the testing and wont go to see her until I'm 100% clear. Usual handwashing etc but it's struck me how different attitudes are from different people: one friend is horrified that I would venture out of my room at all, while another doesn't understand why I'm not going to the cinema with her tonight. What about you?

I did pretty much the same as you when I had it a few weeks ago. I offered to move out of our room, DH wasn’t fussed. I sat in the living room, but distanced.
As it gave me a very upset stomach I was absolutely scrupulous about hand washing, cleaned touch points with Dettol regularly.
Took me 5 days to test negative and I stayed at home. My DSDad is immuno-compromised so I wouldn’t want to pass it on to someone in the same situation.
