Appears as though: this was asked before? She should disrobe immediately upon entering the home, place clothes in laundry and then shower. You need to keep A1c as low as possible, do everything you can to support gut health and immunity and increase supplements that increase resistance to viruses. Sleep apart... your call!

Type 1 diabetes : Is your wife exposed to COVID19? How good is her hospital at PPE? If she is not directly exposed and she takes all precautions, the risk to her is low. Risk factors for COVID19 are age, chronic illness (including diabetes) but that is mostly T2D. Although there's no data, young people with T1D under good control will probably handle the virus well if they get it. Use all precautions.
