For mild symptoms:: Rest, hydrate with water, quarantine, eat healthfully, consider possible use of acetaminophen, saline nas irrigation or a decongestant. Maintain your hygiene. Please get urgent care for shortness of breath, dizziness or blue lips.

Test and quarantine: Not sure what your question is. Get tested. This will help you determine if and for how long you need to quarantine. If you had close, prolonged exposure, I would suggest you try and stay away from your family if possible until your test results are available. Wear your mask even in your home to prevent transmission. Try to rest and try not to overdo things. Also, relax, try some meditation.
