You could: However, most people (not all) can practice social distancing without going to extreme measures. Do you enjoy your cabin? Fresh air? Lots of space? Relaxing? Can you stay productive and engage in meaningful activity there? Can you still do your job? (if your are still employed). Answering these type of questions and weighing them out can help to answer this question. Stay well.

Do we have any hospital that can test a person for the COV-19?

Dr. Robert Kwok

Sure: Tests are only for suspected COVID-19 patients and their contacts. Three months into the global outbreak, the US Centers for Disease Control says state labs will now be able to run tests. Until now, only the main CDC lab was running tests in the US. Any hospital with an ER or intensive care unit should be able to collect the samples (nose swab, sputum, and blood) and send it to the state or CDC.

I have a minor cold and i want to double check when i should be worried, in case it's Covid19 related?

Depends: The covid positive persons who develop shortness of breath or have pain/difficulty breathing on any exertion would be those with more need for hospital based care. The other issue would be who/where you are & who might you infect if you expose a high risk group of people.

If my husband is tested negative for Covid can I assume that I am also negative?

No: It’s still possible you could test positive. And it is possible that your husband was very early in an infection when his sample was collected and that he could test positive later. Or you both could have been exposed later and then develop illness. So you should get tested too. I wish you well with your health!
