Stay home for at least 7 days, rest, drink fluids and monitor your temperature. There is an overlap between flu and COVID-19 symptoms. Nasal congestion and absence of fever are not typically associated with COVID.

Yes you both should speak with your doctor and consider getting strep tests to rule out that versus mild coved case. With your symptoms and travel history coved is likely and appropriate quarentine for 14 days to prevent spread is important
